    Unless I'm mistaken, Sadowsky guitars has nothing to do with this paint job.

    Hmmm... I'd have suggested White-Out...
     
  5. Nope, that's not a Sadowsky paint job. If you look through some earlier threads, you can find out who did it easily enough, though I'm surprised to see those kinds of problems in the work of someone with such a good reputation.

    It's hard to say what I think overall when all that's shown are the problem areas...

    What do I think (about these finish flaws)? I don't like them one bit.

    I guess the moral here is - if you own a Sad. have Sad do the refinish.

    Gross. Get a refund.
     
  12. overpriced.

    return as nonconforming merchandise

    checkout that valenti guy

    or www.michaeldolanguitars.com used to make alembics back in the day. i have an awesom 5-string jazz.

    is your the so-called entry line "metro"
     
  13. You rather missed the point, I think. We are not talking about the price or the quality of Sadowskys--we're talking about the problems with a refinish done on his Sadowsky by a third party.

    Given the amount of issues and the fact that he already screwed up the neck by not properly protecting it in whatever he used to clamp it with. I'm not inclined under any circumstances to give him another whack at my bass.

    In my opinion, given the neck finish issue, a full refund would not even begin to make up for the loss of resale value.

    Pat Wilkins needs to call whoever carries his liabilty insurance then cut me a $3000.00 check. And we all know that ain't gonna happen.

    It really should though.

    Try contacting him and let us know how it goes.

    Im sure he wouldnt like to get a bunch of e-mail or phone calls from bassist who hear he does bad buisness and doesnt correct his mistakes. ;)

    I would expect that on a no-name P.O.S. mass production bass or a bass being customized by a total hack ( like myself... :eek: ) ....for custom/from a "pro", totally unexcusable..... :scowl:

    Why would anyone pay for work to be done that they had to go back and fix themselves!? :scowl: X 2

    Guess I should really be glad I prefer natural finishes...

    I would deff. give him another chance to remedy the problem; and if he doesnt feel his rep. is important enough to him, I would never recommend him to anyone, under any circumstances and would deff. post my experience to every bass/luthier forum I could find......

    A Sadowsky bass that he sent to a third party to have it refinished.
