  1. I bought this from a TB'er in December but I need another 5-string so this one has to go. I am going to quote the original ad since it has all the relevant info:

    Hi, up for sale is an amazing Sadowsky UV70 4 string. Based on the serial number, I think it's a 2006--made about 2-3 years after they started the Metro line. I wish I could keep them all but I need cash ready to fund other projects. Specs are:

    FINISH | Tobacco Sunburst
    BODY | Swamp Ash, Full Size
    NECK | Maple
    FINGERBOARD | Maple, 20 Frets, 10" Radius, 1 1/2" Nut Width, Black Blocks and Binding
    PICKGUARD | Tortoise
    HARDWARE | Chrome
    PICKUPS | Sadowsky Single Coil J in '70s Locations
    PREAMP | Sadowsky Preamp with Vintage Tone Control
    WEIGHT is about 10.2 lbs.
    STRINGS are Sadowsky Blues 45-105
    CASE: Sadowsky nylon case included
    Straplocks: Schaller

    This bass sounds awesome and has beautiful and classic '70s appointments. I had the Sadowsky single coils installed and sold off the original humcancelling pickups. They sound great as you'd expect. Frets are still in great shape with lots of life left. Light swirly scratching on pickguard. Some minor dings that you can barely see in the pictures: small headstock and body dings and very light rash on the neck around the 9th fret on the high string side. Very minor...you probably won't even notice it.

    Asking $1900 shipped CONUS. Might be interested in a 5-string jazz of equal value, or with money coming my way.

    Wow, what beautiful bass and at a great price... I have the same bass with 5 strings and they are just amazing. GLWS!
     
  6. Thanks, Ken. I do love it, just don't play 4-strings much anymore. :crying:

    This one is done.
