    Interesting topic…just hung mine recently in my new house and decided to make my own hangers. I used black walnut blocks and 1/4” lag bolts. The heavy duty steel tool hooks have had the nitro-unsafe rubber coating removed and replaced with 100% natural cotton cord wrap over cotton cloth...the grey rubber caps on the ends don’t come into contact with the bass and cover the end of the steel. The hooks have weight rating of more than 3X what the Hercules hangers are rated for…but I admittedly tend to over-engineer anything I make, especially when a Sadowsky is going to be hanging from it!

    LOL…true. That’s why it just leans up in the corner…couldn’t figure out a socially acceptable way to hang it!

    I'm personally all about storing back in the case, but you did a great job with these. :thumbsup:

    From my show this past Saturday night, opening for Scotty McCreery. I was playing my Sadowsky Satin 5-21 Vintage.

    For anyone that’s in the know,
    What is the difference in sound, capability, and look of the Sadowsky Super P vs standard P pickups?

    Can anyone point me to pictures of the Sadowsky super P pickup?

    At first, I couldn’t figure out why your basses looked off, then I realized you’re a lefty.

    Can't comment on the sound, not many of us here have heard one but to have the versatility of a standard P or a reverse P is invaluable. Here's a link to the what I believe is the first one.

    I’m using a similar slat- type hanger. I think it’s the diamond life brand. I’ve had it up for a few years and I really like it. Not the greatest pic, but you get the idea.

    Is it a dual or triple position toggle?
    Can it engage all 4x coils at once?

    AFAIK the P is a 2 way toggle, P and reverse P, not sure if it's a 3 way for both coils. The super J is a 3 way for either coil and both.

    Great question! I deeply love reverse P, particularly on Yamaha BB2000 basses. Observations from the wild will be most interesting...

    I have a reverse P Overwater SDJ model and I absolutely love it. The bass is a different animal compared to my Verdine White or NYC PJ but it has the absolute best P tone I've ever owned. Not a Swiss army knife like my Sadowsky's but not a one trick pony either. Reverse P is absolutely awesome.
