This is Mikebass original RV5 that he sold to me a few months ago. Its a fantastic bass but I have a main gigging bass and I cant stand to watch it sit. Here is some information from Mikes original post. The RV5 was sent back to Sadowsky for a re-fret and was done by Roger himself. Contact Sadowsky about a re-fret, it isn't cheap and his fret jobs are legendary, and this is a prime example. This comes with the famous Sadowsky pre-amp and hum cancelling pick-ups. Comes with an alder body with rosewood fingerboards. Original factory softsided cases. The bass is exactly as I received it from Mike except I replaced the strings with DRs. The bass is mint except for some VERY minor scuffing on the pick-guard and theres an extremely small ding on the top of the body Serial M111 RV5- $1950 Olympic white, tort pickguard, VTC, chrome "bell" front pick-up cover. Im sure Mike will let everyone know how smooth our original transaction was and since the time I received the bass Ive taken excellent care of this bass. Paypal accepted (I will absorb the fee). Bass, soft case and the price includes shipping! Good Luck...I'm sure this will go fast!
