    Thanks Kenny, can't believe that she's held for so long without a bite! No one seems to want a great bass at a fantastic price.

    IMHO it's the fretless part. If it had frets I'd probably still own it. :) I just dont get enough work to warrant having that much tied up in a fretless. And Sadowsky by and large are a nitch market, fretless even more so. BUT whoever would want this bass IS getting it at a great price and it plays and sounds SO good. GLWTS.

    Thanks Kenny!
     
  6. It pains me to keep looking at this. :)

    Can you explain the control layout? Specifically... Sad pre w/ VTC? What does the switch do?

    Somebody buy this. I have a weakness for aggressive sounding fretless basses in a trans blue finish.

    The EMGs have a strong fundamental. Paired w/ Rogers preamp they are huge and well defined. Where they're positioned gets you a great upper-mid burpy thing. -Kenny Ames

    Pre VTC, this was one of Roger's pre Sadowsky Soap Bar P/U also. However it is an active bass with Roger's Preamp. -Rich Rodriguez

    The switch is the equivalent of the push-pull pots...

    I don't get this - I thought the EMG soaps were active only, so what happens with the toggle?

    Gotta confess I've been eyeing this bass for a while now...

    Thanks!

    Having owned this bass I figured I'd answer.

    The EMG's work actively or passively. Toggle toggle's em....lol.

    Seriously great price on a great bass.
