Another Spalted Sadowsky!!!

  1. Just noticed that Roger has another spalted bass thats available on his "In Stock" page. This one's one of his Ultra Vintage models with a P/J combination and a brazilian board. Really nice!

    I just love the texture of the spalted maple finishes. No two are alike! Spalted maple is a hard wood to work with and because of this somewhat rare. Each one has its' own unique beauty. Just wish I could afford a bunch of them.:(

    That Sadowsky looks really nice. I agree with your comments on spalted maple. It is my favorite top (for natural finish basses.) My FBB (#65, in progress) has a spalted top.
     
  3. Jason,
    Just out of curiousity what was the upcharge for the spalted maple on your new bass? I get the impression they run around $300-$500?
     
  4. That is a beautiful bass!

    The one he made for me (his first Spalted Maple top) is absolutely spectacular. I had never seen flamed spalted maple before.

    What's even better than how they look is how well the sound. Roger simply does outstanding work.
