Well, I thought I would never, ever part with this epitome of master bass craftsmanship, but I cannot prolong the inevitable. I'm putting my beloved Sadowsky NYC Modern up for sale only. This time, its not so much a matter of GAS as a slight change in physiology and perhaps psychology. I started out on a 4-banger way back in the day, quite frankly 5's were just not being built. Fast forward 15 years or so and they became mainstream, not just 5's but 6's too. I've been through them all, and have had many years of joy playing them. Recently, I've just come to realize that with the music I play, and will most likely be playing until I'm 6-ft under, I just don't have a need for 5 or more strings. I am 100% satisfied by the feel and control I have over 4's these days. A four string is MUCH more comfortable to me. Since ole #4770 is probably the BEST feeling bass I've ever played, the action on this thing is incredibly low, and the notes are extremely articulate, I placed an order last week for its 4-string replacement (Thanks to Roger for introducing the 4-string 24F!). This bass is special as recognized by being selected one of Sadowsky's Featured Instruments (http://www.sadowsky.com/stock/featured_inst.html). Anyway to make a short story long, here she is up for grabs. I really don't need to sell her, but she really needs to be played instead of hanging on my wall or sitting in the case. Specs: ----------------------------- FINISH: Tiger's Eye Burst BODY: AAAA Quilted Maple on Swamp Ash FINGERBOARD: Birdseye Maple, No Face Dots, Vintage Tint PICKGUARD: None HARDWARE: Black PICKUPS: Nordstrand Big Singles Currently, she is strung E-C with Sadowsky Nickels (and a D'Addario C string). Comes with the usual Sadowsky case and all case candy. I take excellent care of my instruments. The front protective plastic was even kept on for a year. There are no major scratches, dents, scrapes, etc to speak of. I would like to get $3,500 shipped firm. This bass would probably cost between $4,500 to $4,600 new. Paypal eCheck and Money Orders preferred. Here are the pics from Sadowsky's site (http://www.sadowsky.com/stock/view/feat_4770.html). I'll try to take some more tomorrow and post them here.
