    I got these basses a few months ago in a pawn shop, one is a Fender copy and the other one is a custom, rough hand made bass.

    First up is the Fender Copy, nice bass, sounds OK I guess, The headstock says "Sadowsky" my guess is that it's one of those Korean/Chinese copies. Somebody painted black squares all over the fretboard with a sharpie or something (it looks decent) $199 shipped.

    Second one is the one I call "tipsy" Bass. It has 5 strings. The fretwork is terrible, the frets are all crooked, not only that but even the fret markers are all crooked (look at the pic). My guess is that it was either built as a joke or the guy got a little "tipsy" and went crazy (5 strings and crooked frets, who plays 5 stringers these days, Jaco only needed 4 strings!!). This one says "Dingwall" on the headstock and was made in Canada (it figures) $299 shipped.

    Feel free to ask any questions and thanks for looking!

    I will trade you my old beater Precision for either of these. I should warn you that it's filthy, the action is unreasonably high, and some idiot wrote the word "FUNK" on the back of the headstock. The strings are really dirty, and I'm guessing they've never been changed.

    Ill pay you $1500 to take them off your hands, just because you've taken such good care of these Junkers. I'll try to get my tech to straighten out the neck on that second one. Maybe he can put the body in a vise and take a blowtorch to it and straighten out those pickups while he's at it.

    Nice unique one for today..

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I heard that those Chinese/Korean Sadowsky basses are really just made of the Chinese/Korean equivalent of Warmoth necks and bodies and just screwed together in some Chinese/Korean office.
