    What is your favorite Sadowsky model ? I really like the Jazz models with Soapbars.

    I like my PJ5, but I still want to try it in a JJ configuration.

    Will Lee, but I never met a Sadowsky I didn't like.

    Which ever you get, i bet you will be STOKED. You cant go wrong with any SADOWSKY. if you can get to the shop and try a bunch out, even better. That crew is simply outstanding when it comes to you and your SADOWSKY choice. Kev, Roger and that whole crew are top notch.

    I would love to get a 90's Modern, like the one Marcus Miller used to play with!

    Ah, all you guys can keep your nice shinny new Sadowsky Basses. Give me some VINTAGE Sadowsky like my 1988 7.5 lbs NYC Standard "SWR"! Super light, thin style neck and very broken in!

    I love my NYC 5-24. I recently did some recording and went through a stack of basses to find the right one to suit the project. The Sadowsky sat in the mix so nicely.

    I highly recommend the new Will Lee V Sadowskys. After 5 Sadowsky basses (V 24 f, JB 4 vintage, PJ vintage V, Metro V) I have arrived at the perfect mix of sound and ergonomics. The necks are a blessing.

    hey guys, maybe someone can help, on a different note regarding the Will Lee5, i know that the nut width is 45mm so it is 2mm slimmer than the MV5 or RV5, which is gonna be great for me, now regarding the width at last fret on the Will Lee5 is it also slimmer than the MV5 or RV5? width on last fret (21 fret) of my MV5 is 76mm which to me is a bit wide and i am thinking of buying a will lee 5 because it's got a slimmer nut and i hope it does have a slimmer width at last fret as well. anyone here can help with this issue, will appreciate it a lot. thanks and keep thumpin'

    Sadowsky offers slimmer nut widths, but I don't believe slimmer bridge spacing is available. So, the extra slimness of the WL5 will gradually decrease as you go from nut toward bridge: i.e. if it's 2mm slimmer at the nut, it'll be 1mm slimmer at the 12th fret, and somewhat less than 1mm at the 22nd fret (which is the last fret on a WL model).

    ash/maple Vintage J with Sadowsky singles and stock (60's) pickup position. That, IMO, is the classic 'Sadowsky tone'.

    Yeah, very Jason Newsted in a way (he also liked Vintage and Standard as well)

    I'd tell you:

    Standard with Nordstrand's

    Yet:
    1- I like all the others, no problem
    2- I just can't afford'em anyway...

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    I like my jazz 4 for many applications, but mainly use my pj4 with TI flats. This is for country pop, trad country, classic rock, and the sprinkling of other styles I occasionally do.
