    Hi,

    Does anyone know of someone who makes something along the lines of the Sadowsky M5 but in a four string. I'm looking for something with two soapbars biased towards the bridge. I don't need 24 frets though. Dual MMs biased towards the bridge would work too.

    Thanks for any help.

    Sadowsky has made his J and P body basses with soapbar pups in the Modern location. I've seen them on the Archives of his website.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    That one is from 1998. When I asked him a while back about 4 string soapbars, he said the few he did make were one off. I don't think he's doing the bridge biased soaps in a 4 string.

    I could be wrong. I'll poke around his site some more.

    AFAIK he's taking orders on NYC Modern 4-24's. You probably won't see it in a Metro though.

    I believe this is in the works. Your best bet is to contact Roger directly. www.sadowsky.com




    Or TBer "Bikeplate" (Rob), the unofficial (official) Sadowsky ambassador to TB...

    ;)

    cheers,

    Thanks for the info, everyone. Unfortunately, it would have to be a Metro, as I can't swing a new NYC right now. Oh well.

    Anyone know of any other options?

    The Lakland 44-01 is a little like that IMO.

    Not exactly 2 soapbars close to the bridge but close enough if you ask me.
    The other option would be a custom Valenti or a Warmoth project.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone.

    I've played the 44-01, nice bass but not what I'm looking for.

    I figured I would have to go the Warmoth/custom route but figured I'd ask anyway.
