    Selling my Sadowsky NYC Jazz 5 string. I bought it new from the Sadowsky shop Brooklyn in August 2009. It has everything you would expect from a Sadowsky including VTC (passive tone control) as well as upgraded single coil pickups (I have the hum-canceling pickups available as well). The bass plays great with low action! This bass is mint. So mint that it still has the protective film on the back and pickguard.

    Info from Sadowsky Site:
    FINISH | Ice Blue Metallic
    BODY | Alder
    FINGERBOARD | Madagascar Rosewood, 12" Radius, 1 7/8" Nut Width, Vintage Tint
    PICKGUARD | Tortoise
    HARDWARE | Chrome
    PICKUPS | Sadowsky Humcancelling (Now Single Coils Nordstrand NJ5)
    WEIGHT | 7.85 lbs. (3.56 kg)
    PREAMP | Sadowsky Preamp with Vintage Tone Control


    I had it into the Sadowsky shop a few months ago to get it checked out and they said they would sell it for $3500. A̶s̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶$̶3̶2̶5̶0̶ ̶(̶p̶l̶u̶s̶ ̶s̶h̶i̶p̶p̶i̶n̶g̶)̶. Price drop to $3200 shipping included to ConUs and Canada.

    Thanks Steve...I definitely would not be selling if I could use the 5 string more often!

    All pm's replied. There have been a few trade offers, I should mention I would prefer to sell outright as I have my eye on a vintage pbass at the moment. As far as trades I'm definitely not in the market for a 5 string (if i were I would just hold on to this bass). Thanks
