First of all, this is not to discredit Sadowsky basses (I am a big fan even though I don't own one). I was in a local music instruments store when I saw a black jazz body 4 string Sad (probably MV4). I was so excited that finally I can try out a Sadowsky. However, I was surprised of the sharp fretwires protruding from the edges of the maple fretboards on the G string side from the 8th fret towards the body. The fretwires are sharp and protruding outward that it could cause minor cuts especially when sliding up and down the neck. To be honest, I never expected this for a Sadowsky bass knowing Mr. Sadowsky's strict quality control on his products. Now, If Mr. Sadowsky can send me a private message, I can tell him the store name and location so he could ask his staff here in Japan to pull it out from the store before it creates some doubt on the quality of Sadowsky instruments. Happy 2014!
