    Sadowsky NYC Vintage JJ5, chambered, graphite bars with trussrod adjustment wheel for sale or trade for a limited time.
    This is one bass I'm really struggling with a sale and at the same time I want upgrade my 6 string as they are getting more playing time. I bought this one from Zev Katz, a Sadowsky endorser/New York studio player and it's an awesome player. Very nice shape for a 10 year old bass I'd rate a high 8 or low 9 out 10 with no major wear. The back of the neck has had the light sand and oil as per Roger Sadowsky..... very smooth. There is something about this bass that makes it special compared to all the NYC's I've owned which make this a tough sale for me. it will be shipped in a brand new Protec Contego gig bag.

    $3100 shipped conus in a brand new Protec Contego gig bag


    Bank check/Money order and other fee less transactions

    This is one of the best Sadowskys I've ever played and I'm tempted to buy it... I'm usually not a fan of maple boards, but this has one of the best tones I've ever heard.. Bob is also great to work with... I've bought 2 basses from him and each time was a breeze... :bassist:

    So does this mean you're not going to be selling any more 5'vers? :(

    1 7/8 tthe.. You can check on the Sadowsky website for specs. Just hit on one of the other basses and replace that 4 digit number with this one.

    Thanks, yeah, I looked but nut width isn't there, may be due to this instrument being an older build back before 1 3/4" was a common option.
