    The bass has been VERY gently used and is in truly beautiful shape with no issues, dings or damage whatsoever. A fresh-ish set of Sadowsky Blue Label stainless is currently on it. The _ONLY_ reason I'm selling it is I'm buying another Sadowsky. :smug:

    Love that color-looks like the old lake placid blue on Japanese fenders.

    Hello! Can i ask you a something? Would you be so kind to measure the headstock depth size? I'm trying to figure out why these basses sound is so solid, and i believe an important ingredient is extra mass in the headstock... Thanks, i apologize if i'm bothering you...

    Thank you so much. My fender am dlx '13 is just a bit thinner and my other two basses (custom made) are actually a bit fatter. None of them have any deadspots or nothing, they just sound good. My OCD is quiet now, thank you!! :) Beautiful looking bass by the way, good luck with the sale.

    I'm now considering trades. I'm located in NC and would love another 5-string but would consider a 4-string...

    pre-Gibson Tobias
    Pedulla
    Ken Smith
    U.S. Spectors (I'm especially looking for an NS-2, EMGs, HAZ pre, maple wings, pau ferro board)
    Devon
    50s, 60s Fenders
    Nordstrand
    Alleva Coppolo
    other Sadowsky basses (maybe a Modern or something different from mine)

    ... or something along these lines. PM me with offers. Thanks!

    If I had somewhere to put it, we might have reason to talk... but seeing that I don't, we won't. Thanks anyway!
