    Great looking bass and the weight is fantastic. What are the two mini toggle switches set up for?

    Man, this is super tempting!

    Are those pickups in the 70's position?

    Also, what kind of Sadowsky basses are you interested in?

  12. Sweet! If it had the Duncan dual coils I'd be all over it! I'm almost relieved! LOL! I already have a killer jazz bass.
