    Well, it's not really. I saw an ad on Harmony Central that the seller wanted to trade a Vintage 5 string for a vintage 4 string. Well, I have 2 vintage 4's & no vintage 5's. We deceided on an even trade & came up w/a plan since we don't live so close together. He's gonna ship his bass to Roger's shop. When it get's there, I'll check it out & if I like it, I'll send my bass to him in North Carolina.

    I gave up my Lake Placid Blue w/matching headstock Vintage 4, for those of you keeping count. ;)

    Nino...you are an evil, EVIL man. It's people like you that make people like me fall victim to terrible, terrible GAS...
     
  5. Shuh-wiiiing!! Superb score on that vintage 5! Enjoy.

    BTW, do you have your paychecks direct deposited into Sadowsky's bank account? ;)

    1/ Get as many basses as Nino has,
    2/ On each of them, mount as many strings as JT has on hims.

    :D ;)

    Most seriously : congrats Nino, you got a fine bass.

    All the best,

    It's a beauty - the quilted maple adds a real blast of class to the classic vintage style. I'm waiting patientlly (more or less) for a similar V5 except this one will be fretless. Have a V4 and its a great bass. Enjoy!
     
  13. Hey Nino,

    I am defintely a fan of the vintage 5 but that Lake Placid Blue 4 was totally sweet! If I could have a bass of my choice with any colour I would choose that!
    Damn, you have a nice collection of sweet basses! I am totally jealous of you.:)
     
  14. As a radiologist I feel obligated to offer Nino an MRI of the brain to make sure there is no organic cause for this madness. ;)
