    I'm with you, my first bass was red and wasn't my choice. I can't complain, I won it in a drawing at Sam Ash but with some stage lighting it looked more hot pink. Everytime I heard someone say you play a pink bass, as a teenager I'd always argue back that it was red. Never thought of owning a red bass ever since although dark cherry metallic looks awesome in pics, I'd have to see it in person.

    My first bass was CAR with a white guard. Kalamazoo KB1. More recently, I had a gorgeous Black Cherry Metallic WL5, which is nothing like CAR, but still awesome.

    I’ve always thought that if I were lucky enough to work one of those gigs at Disney World, I’d def go for CAR with the white guard.

    It’s a good-looking instrument for sure, just not a color I’d ever own. If I did somehow end up with a red bass, even a Sadowsky as pretty as that, I’d have to get it refinished.

    Speaking of, anyone ever get their Sadowsky refinished? There’s a used NYC I’m looking at and I’m just wondering what a professional refinish requires and costs.

    Awesome examples - both! While these being beautiful basses - red and I get along like oil and water. The last red item of clothing I wore was in 3rd grade. If I posted the pic you would probably understand my aversion to anything red, but we will leave that alone for now. :roflmao:
     
  9. I've never cared for black basses, but somehow I've ended up with a bunch of them, including my Metro MS4.

    I’ve had Black and Red Sadowsky basses over the years. I love my Satin Modern 4!
    So comfy to play and looks killer too! 7F0EEC1A-1C36-4C25-A0CA-FDF94A29FBEF.

    Here is my first Sadowsky I purchased!

  14. I have, Pat Wilkins refinished an NYC Modern 5 I used to own. He did an awesome job, I was very pleased with the quality of his work...and the price and the turnaround time. Was a great overall experience.
    I posted a a few before & after pics in this Wilkins Appreciation thread.
    I emailed him and he promptly replied back with a quote. Feel free to PM me if you'd like more details.

    Bass still plays beautifully and I can't decommission it long enough to put Sad Flats on it. On the other hand the T-Shirt are great!

    True that! My production pic (Alder body/master grade Brazilian/vv)... 8E7467E7-D9A6-4EE5-B453-DABEB49A41B4. 4A896DF2-A2D2-492F-8AD9-5013184A45A3.
    ...active mode is fantastic, but it’s absolutely stellar in passive mode, too! Ever blooming/sweeter tone with time. I’ve had it awhile, but wouldn’t change a spec, even if I could...:thumbsup:
