    I've been holding off from buying a Sad 5 for years.
    I'm picky, and I'm a pro, meaning I'll use it daily, two or three gigs sometimes.

    Well I broke down today and put a deposit down on a NEW MS5 59burst, cool. Looking forward to it.

    THEN, . . . I go online and see a MV5 car for sale as a demo.
    Ths was my second choice of color. Crap, save money, acheive objective?!!? So I've ordered it

    SOoo, Now I have 2 sadowsky Metros on order.

    Any observations or condemnations or support for a NUT who finally broke down in a big way??!!!?? :confused:

    Looking to hear from Sad owners out there.

    PS Will HAVE TO HAVE the VTC on both or whichever I keep

    My wife is jealous of my Sadowsky. I had never played one, but emptied the piggy bank for one. I'm glad I did.

    Thanks Tom, Roger picks a good top i am sure you will get something great.You would rather have the above mentioned then the P5?.
     
  13. Major....This is fulfilling a need for a bass I ordered from Roger last year and had to cancel due to a health scare (thought I had a stroke and was partially paralyzed on my left side for about 4 months!) Here is a pic of it:

    I REALLY wanted this bass at the time and I have decided that I will get this one right now and add a P bodied PJ5 later (unless I see something that GRABS me in the meantime) I keep watching the site for something to reach out to me like my current NYC Vintage 4 in my Avatar did...

    Sorry to digress from the thread Kevin BUT as you can see we have the same DISEASE LOL!!!

    Peace.
