I ordered this bass directly from Sadowsky last year, and got it in February. In the meantime life changed and I haven't really had time to play as much as I had hoped. It has been out of the case for a few minutes 2 or 3 times. It is as mint as it gets. Olympic White, alder body, rosewood board. All of the plastic is still on the pickguard and back of the guitar. Comes with all paperwork and accessories in the Sadowsky ultralight case as from the factory. It has the VTC installed. It's extremely resonant and it sounds great as you might expect. It weighs just a tad over 9 1/2 pounds. On eBay now, but will sell on TB for $1900 shipped / PayPal'd in the lower 48. Please, no trade offers. You can see my eBay feedback under the user ID hoffmanj. Thanks for looking!
