    Yeah!!! LOL

    Jim, that is one BEAUTIFUL peice of wood. Are you going to put a pickguard/control plate on it? If we lived closer, I'd take you up on that MRI. ;)

    YES, I KNOW I'M SICK!!!!! :D:p
     
  2. I'm kinda out of the know so whats the deal with this sadowsky fellow? I had to call him about a preamp he put in a used bass I'm getting but other than that whats up with him, like waht does he do?

    Washburn...I mourn the loss too. I'd probably let the 24 fret 5 go before that one. Nino...is there a method to your madness? ;)
     
  4. Thanks (like I had anything to do with mother nature's work). I'll probably go with the Sadowsky "Standard" mode with no pickguard. However, there's a small chance I'll change my mind and put a clear pickguard on it because I like the effect of having my knuckles bounce off the pickguard when I pop.

    Probably black hardware but that's a loooong time away. It'll have an Sadowsky PJ pickups, alder body, and morado or Brazilian rosewood fingerboard.

    I'm with kcd Nino! I don't know if I could let go a LPB with matching Head!! That's my fav bass you own.
    But that 5 has a sweet quilted top,,,, hmmmmm, I'm torn.... Either way you get a great bass, AGAIN!
    Enjoy!!!

    I wanted to trade the trans blue one also, but I showed the guy, Gary, pictures od both Sadowsky Vintage 4's & he (as every one including me) liked the Lake Placid Blue one better.

    Which is why I really don't mind giving up the LAke Placid Blue one.
     
  7. LPB is funky cool but if it we me, it's no brainer. I'd do what Nino did.

    hey nino,

    i started that favorite fender color poll, and LPB is leading the pack ... ;)

    you can't go wrong regardless of color (as you know) ...

    i wish i could play a five ... i can't tell you how many times somebody shouted out "E" and everybody got to hear "B" ... too many years of playing a four, i guess ...

    :eek: Are you saying Nino IS a NO BRAINER!!!!!



    :p :D
    I voted for LPB, also.

    I'll eventually buy a LPB Vintage 5 w/matching headstock. LOL
     
  11. i think there should be NINO B clause for all bass players,

    In the event of not having the bass you want, you pull out the NINO B clause and say hell, i'm having it built anyway, and by law your spouse, mother girlfriend, bank manager or lack of money can't stop you.

    Its the same as government aninimity.

    so nerrrr

    :)

  14. Nino - I'm also a LPB man but I think you done good on this one. I liked your trans blue one, and as for the quilt on your new 5!!! I got a thing about quilted maple just now I think it brill!!!!

    BTW, let me know when you grow weary of any of your Spectors - you seem heavily influenced by the Sadowsky camp of late - I'll happily look after them for you;)

    Well, the trade is completed. Gary loved the Lake Placid Blue Vintage 4 & I love the the Vintage 5. I took the pickguard off & I'm DEFINITLY going to get a clear pickguard like on my Trans-Blue Vintage 4.

    I brought it to band rehearsal last night & it KILLS!!!! I didn't expect anything less from a Sadowsky. After rehearsal, I saw a friend of mine & he said: "Damn, that was you, the bass was rumbling everything out here." LOL:D

    If you have to ask, you can't afford one. ;)

    $2500-$3500, depending on options. A VJ5 like Nino's new acquisition runs closer to the $3500 end.

    Nino, does that have a bird's eye maple neck? Hard to tell in the pics.

    I love that guilt top, and no offense guys, LPB IMO is really boring... I would never get a solid colour given trans as an option. LPB is a way good fender colour, but bursts and such are sooo much better, and you get to see the pretty wood under :D

    Nice score Nino, but I really can't imagine you liked that one better than the trans blue. For my sake I'm glad he liked it better though, now the oh so beautiful trans blue is still safe with Nino ;)
