  1. Finally. I bought a Sadowsky.

    It´s a fantastic instrument, the best i´ve played so far. And sounds amazing.
    It needed a little setup when it got here but nothing dramatic.

    Just wanted to use the opurtunity to thank all you boys who helped me out with all the info you gave me..

    Just got it today.. so i´m going with it to paractice tonight so it´ll be nice to see how it turns out...

    The one i bought is just like the black one in the picture

    Yes, be mature about it. But remember, if you don't do it we'll all talk about you when you're offline...

    They're a little too "retro" for my tastes, but I hear tell they play real well.

    Retro? You've seen a modern 24 model, right?

    I mean, you're certainly entitled to your tastes, but..just curious....what are you playing that is more "modern"?

    I love it! Congrats on the bass, I'm itching for the very same model.
     
  15. Hmm.... Buying my first Sadowsky has increased my GAS for another!!!!!!!!

    I stand corrected, I should have said:
    I'm GAS free for other brands since I bought my first Sadowsky. :cool:

    I got one, too last week.
    Some years ago I tried a Modern 5 w. EMGs. I did not like the sound AT ALL.

    So I was quite excited when i saw the NYC MV5 on ebay. I got it for 2000euros. Including shipping and taxes (from Switzerland into the EU) it cost me exactly 2447 euros!!!! I played my first gig with the Humcancelling PUs.
    Yesterday I put some Sad SCs in and I am ready for my next gig this weekend!!!!

    It is such a great instrument. I have been playing other active and passive 5 string Js (Fender Roscoe Beck, Trace Elliot T, esh Notorius II, Lakland Joe Osborn w. J-Retro) and other 5 strings (Sandberg Basic MM clone, esh Sovereign, esh Various, GL2500 Tribute, Fender Jazz Plus, Warwick Thumb NT, Ibanez EDA905...)

    The hype is true: The Sadowsky Vintage outclasses them all!!!!
     
  18. Took it to practice last night.. simply in love.
    The playability is awesome, It´s my first 5str. And even last night witch was the first time i played the bass for real i had no trouble playing it. Love the neck on it.
    The bass sounds great. Love how crystal clear the tone is, still with amazing bottom end at the same time and sustains forever.

    I can´t agree that it is very Retro. I Mean it can be but that can easily be dialed out. One thing a had a little trouble with was the A string. couple of notes seemed just a little lower in volume but i just think that it has something to with that string beying a little funky. So i got a new set of strings with the bass to try out.
    I´ve got two other basses. Status Aktive & Passive P bass and the Sadowsky has a little lower output than those 2.

    I certainly can agree that the Sadowskys can be blabbermouths!
    They do tell if your tec. is not good enough. But i see that as a good thing. Time to practice :)


    Sadowsky by far the best instrument i´ve played so far..
    Now i know what i´ll be thinking about next time i´ve sex :)
