    Up for sale is my less than a year old NYC Vintage 4 JJ Sadowsky. This bass has a maple burl top with swamp ash body w/accent line, and maple neck. The board has a 9" radius and is set up V-V-T-Vtc. Has single coils installed for a more vintage tone. It is in great condition with very minor scratches on the back of body and one ding on the headstock.
    I am asking $3,499 for bass and OHC shipped and insured to lower 48 states. I can only accept cashiers check from Wells Fargo Bank or personal check. No trades please. Feel free to ask any questions you'd like. Thank you for looking.

    As a banker, I must say, please be careful with money orders. They are so easily obtained, we don't even take them over $500 unless its rent from a tenant. Good luck with the sale, I wish I could buy it :)

    Free BUMP for a fellow SADOWSKY player, if requesting a MONEY ORDER just make sure it is a US POSTAL MONEY ORDER, when it arrives head over to your local Post Office and cash it, then and only then do you ship. I have been accepting US POSTAL money orders for over 12 years with ZERO problems, again US POSTAL money orders only. If it cashes then its good to go, they run the Money Order thru their systems before they give you that cash, so you know when they hand over the cash the money order is good and now the item is good for shipping. Good luck with this beauty.

    I think a lot of people feel the same as you. I never felt the need for five strings.

    There are even more fraudulent cashier's checks than money orders. Request a cashier's check that is from a bank in your area like Bank of America, then take it to that bank and cash it.

    If you stem from playing Fender jazz basses than this is the Sadowsky for you. I have played vintage Fenders for about 15 years and I ordered this Sadowsky with that in mind. It has a 9" radius fretboard, as opposed to the standard 12", which feels semi-similar to most Fenders. I believe most vintage Fenders are anywhere from 7"-10" radius. It also has the single coil pickups Roger offers wired just like a Fender, V/V/T/VTC. Many believe this configuration gives you more tonal options.
    This may feel close to a Fender, but sounds like a Sodowsky. In fact as soon as I sell this I am going to purchase a Sadowsky outboard preamp to run my vintage Fenders through. I'm only selling this beautiful Sadowsky because I believe a bass is made to be played regardless if it's 1 year, or 46 years old. I play my vintage fenders because it's impossible to duplicate the tone and feel of a 46 year old Fender.
