Ordered in April, so still a whole lotta months left to go!
Here's mine. I've had it for ten years...
Chambered alder and Brazilian RW board.
I've been posting that same pic for ten years too!
Mines supposedly in final Roger stage. Won’t take delivery until August.
Time Stand Still...
Here's mine. Will Lee Model
black hardware but still a chrome bridge?
Well, I'm weird too then.
I grew up in the UK in the 60s when there was a trade embargo or something and you couldn't buy US guitars in the UK.
Hence the Hofner, Burns and Vox guitars at the time.
If you were big and had a top agent then you could get a Fender imported.
Hence the Shadows and John Entwistle but people wanted the Buddy Holly thing so red was it.
Herbie Flowers (Blue Mink, Space Oddity, Walk on the Wild Side etc.) bought his at Manny's NYC in 1960 and it's LPB but is red underneath.
Apparently, Fender made lots of red ones and sprayed over as required.
My local shop's first Fender basses were both sunburst and when I saw Jimmy Garret back the Supremes in '68 he played a sunburst Precision.
Is that why I love sunburst, CAR and LPB?
Already posted my CAR Sadowsky. I also have a black one without matching headstock, and a white one with.
Again, I need to take glamour shots of my Sadowskys, but this'll have to do:
Owner of a beautiful Sadowsky PJ with a few questions..
Is there a way to identify which pickups I have?
Also I have been thinking about having Roger change the J pu and putting in either Super J or Soap.. can someone describe the difference in tone vs the standard J tonally in this configuration. TY^
Cell phone pic of last weekends arsenal, both Red & Black!
I’ve tried a couple different Sadowsky P pickups that sounded pretty different. One set had the Sadowsky logo on the shell, the other had nothing. Not sure if that means they were manufactured by someone different?
That Black ‘n Maple is classy, but I sure love seeing you post photos of that white one with the MM pickup. It reminds me of how awesome Roger, Ellis and crew are when presented with cool, unique ideas!
That makes a lot of sense! I think we definitely gravitate to what we idolized as a young player, and you’ve definitely got good taste in colors there (I’ve got a LPB Mike Lull that I love the color, just hate the 35” scale).
When did you order?
I had never played an ash/ebony combo till the red Will Lee that is in stock now. Ebony is usually not for me, but combined with ash, it has a punchy sound that I really like.
Looks like there is enough room to have both of Leo's iconic pickup flavors in one bass??!!
Yes, my first! - 24 fret modern 5, natural ash, maple fretboard with MOP dots, Sadowsky Soapbars in 60s position. Reverse pan, Volume, Tone, T/B controls. Here's a shot from May, will post pics when in hand, hopefully in a month or so!
