    Up for sale/trade is Sadowsky #6711 a 2014 build NYC 24 fret, 5 string with soapbars in the modern pickup location.

    Asking $3,975 OBO shipped CONUS. PayPal preferred payment method.

    This bass was originally Black Pearl, I had Pat Wilkins refinish it last year in gloss Sapphire Blue with a matching headstock. Bass in in excellent condition, no dings, dents or scratches. Only sign of player wear is some very light swirling around below the G string and above the B string…you have to look hard for it and I couldn’t get it to show in the pics but wanted to mention for full disclosure.

    Model: NYC Standard 24 fret 5 String ($4,800)
    Hardware: Black ($50 upgrade)
    Pat Wilkins Finish: gloss Sapphire Blue ($660)
    Body: Okoume - lightweight African Mahogany ($50 upgrade)
    Fingerboard: Madagascar Rosewood ($400 upgrade)
    Neck: Maple with Thin Matte Nitro Finish
    Nut Width: 1 7/8″ Nut
    String Spacing: 19mm (standard)
    Pickups: Sadowsky Soapbars
    Preamp: Sadowsky Preamp with Vintage Tone Control
    Weight: 7.69lbs

    This bass sounds killer, and is super light at 7.69lbs. I haven’t seen many Sadowksy’s with this combo of mahogany body and Madagascar Rosewood, its very thick and warm sounding, great low end and mids.

    It didn’t come with a Portabag when I got it but it’ll ship in a new Roadrunner gig bag. I do also have available a Mono Vertigo and a Gator hard shell case, we can work something out on those if interested. I installed a new set of Sadowsky blue label nickel strings on 3/2.

    Got the itch to try something different so looking to either sell and fund my first custom build. Also interested in the trades shown below. Trade value ~$4,200 (total cost with the Pat Wilkins refinish is just under $6k).

    Please PM any trades or offers. Thanks for looking!

    Trade Interests:
    Sadowsky NYC 5 string (with a different wood combo and/or pickup placement)
    Sadowsky Metro Will Lee 5 (+cash from you)
    Fbass VF5 PJ
