I've had a lot of sadowsky 5s, and this is one of the 2 best. A very special instrument with tons of personality and a very open, resonant voice, with that classic round woodieness that Brazilian Rosewood gives the bass. It also has the rare optional 1 3/4" nut width, which makes it feel way sleeker and faster than other sadowsky 5s. I have a sadowsky 4 that is my favorite bass I've every played, period, and I don't play 5 string very much any more, so I'm going to let this one go. Set up a bit lower than stock with flat relief and fresh sadowsky blue label steel 45-130T. http://www.sadowsky.com/stock/view/4688.html $3500 shipped to the lower 48, paypal accepted and preferred.
