  1. Sadowsky NYC 5 - Ash/Maple '59 burst, Singles/VTC

    I've had this bass for nearly two years and it's been my main player since I got it. I've done hundreds of gigs with it, TV, studio, etc.

    Specs:

    Sadowsky NYC Vintage 5

    June 2000
    Nicely grained Ash/Maple board
    '59 burst
    Sadowsky single coils / VTC
    Chrome hardware/ultralight pegs
    Pearloid white pickguard
    Weight: 9.39 lbs / 4259 g
    Original case (Sadowsky semi-hard case)
    Battery has been moved inside the control cavity (like the newer Sadowskys)
    1-7/8" nut width, 34" scale, 19 mm @ bridge

    Great condition with the following two exceptions...

    - a few dings on the sides of the body (see photos), most are on the bottom. The front and back of the bass are pretty clean.
    - a 2 inch roundish spot at the very top the headstock has had it's finish dulled by (I'm assuming) some wrong cleaning stuff. It is barely noticeable from 2 ft but the tint difference is there if you look very closely or turn the headstock.

    Previous owner said: "This is a stellar Sadowsky, nicely broken in. Phenomenal tone with the singles and action as low as you would like it."

    Price: $2700 + shipping

    Trades: Mostly looking for a sale, but will consider Nordy VJ5 classic, Alleva-Coppolo LM5 with one-piece maple necks (+/- cash)
