    I've looked on the site a few times and was wondering if he makes a 24 fret 4 string?
    thanks

    Yes. His Modern style 5 strings have 24 frets, and two big-ole humbuckers.
     
  3. Read the question again.
     
  4. While he makes a 5 like this, I have never seen a 4.

    A 24 fret 4 String is not offered right now but Roger has said in the past it is in the Works. :)

    My bad. I haven't seen a 4 like this either. But I don't know for sure.

    Lately I've found myself really jonesing (or "gasing" as it is alos reffered to) for a sadowsky/maple fretboard/ash body/24 fret 4 stringer j bass.
    I'm somewhat afraid to look at the price tag when he does come out with the 4 string 42 fretter. Maybe it's better for me that he doesn't have one yet.

    42 frets would like totally rock and the bass would be like totally taller than me...imagine the sonic possibilities.

    There might be one out there :bag:
    But, Roger (or anyone else) has yet to disclose this info!
     
  19. There was a prototype 24/4 NYC last January. It was CAR. Very, very nice. I'm not sure if Sadowsky had plans to make them available to the public. It seems like there is always a prototype bass hidden in the shop.
