    _____________________ SOLD ___________________________________

    Up for sale is an amazing, mint condition (I'm talking flawless here folks) custom built Sadowsky NYC Jazz I put together with Roger & the NYC shop about 12 months ago. After the 7 month wait, I've had this about 5-6 months in my practice room.

    Be prepared, you're about to witness a drool-fest, and a bass that probably shouldn't be sold... This very well may be the most amazing 60's style JJ that has come out of the NYC shop, and I take great pleasure in being the person who spec'd this out.

    It's also with deep regret that I have to put this up for sale as it is my dream 60's style Jazz. But as life would have it and with me no longer gigging, I can no longer justify owning such a "Luxury Bass".

    Yup, this is pretty much the Bentley of a 60's style Jazz. I went all out for that vintage vibe when building this. Everything from the Brazilian Board, to the Pearl Block Inlays, to the Shoreline gold finish with Matching Headstock... even requesting a solid light weight body (non-chambered) in an effort to nail a 60's style JJ in a way only Roger & Co. could produce.

    Sadowsky Portabag included with all the case candy.

    This bass tipped $5,000 when I put it together, and with current prices it would cost $5125.00 to build + 7 month wait.

    I'm firm at $4350.00 + shipping. I'll accept certified check / money order. I'm open to other forms of payment as well, just PM me.
    NO TRADES

    Please PM me if your interested. Serious buyers only

    I'm very firm on my price folks. Please do not low-ball offer me on this one guys. PM's will politely be ignored. NO TRADES. This was a custom build, 7 month wait bass that holds a special place with me. In addition to that, its just simply killer and in mint/flawless/showroom condition.

    That is some kind of 60's vision shimmering before my eyes.

    Preacher always said that if I was up early on Sunday morning and cast my gaze around, I might have a religious experience.
