    Guys,
    this hurts me a lot but some circumstances are forcing me to sell two real gems.
    Sorry, but I'm offering these basses for sale only in Europe. Price are in Euro currency.
    Let me preface that I’m the original owner of both basses and they've been babied to the point that you can swear they are brand new. Not a single scratch or dent ... nothing! Both basses are strung with Thomastik Jazz Flats. NO TRADES, THANKS. Buyer choose and pays for his preferred shipping.

    Sadowsky NYC 4 strings bought at Roger’s shop October 2003. Ash body and madegascar rosewood fingerboard. Nice quilted maple top, caramel burst. Sadowsky humcancelling J pickups. No VTC.
    I’ll part from this baby for Eur 2500.

    Sadowsky3962.

    CB 32” scale 4 string fretless. Body construction: mahogany body, bloodwood top, walnut back. Maple/wenge neck, lined ebony fingerboard. Nordstrand NJSE pickups. Passive electronics. This baby is a bomb. Here’s my review:

    PM sent. I'd like to be first in line for the CB if you decide to ship to the U.S.

    Good luck with the sale. That is an amazing looking bass.

    The CB is on hold.

    I must clear that I'm open to international shipping if the buyer is ready to pay the shipping cost (that's not cheap).

    WOW!! The CB bass came---from Italy to NJ in 4 days!!! It is SMOKING hot. I can't believe that I've lived for so long without this bass. I will post more info after I've played it for a bit, but I'm loving it.

    Also, to anyone who is thinking about the Sadowsky---Michele is great to work with. He went above and beyond to make this deal happen.

    M-Thanks for everything. This bass will be loved for a long time. I hope that makes it easier to let it go.

    Some place deep inside I was hoping maybe NickyBass would not like the CB too much so I might buy this one from him. :D
    Enjoy your CB bass Nicky !!!

    The packaging Phweeeewwww. I'm still sweating from unpacking it. Ha. It was done up very well. Especially since it was making a far trip.

    I am very impressed with this bass....the construction is just amazing. Me and my wife were looking at the neck joint of a long time, trying to figure out how someone can do that with their hands. I've always been amazed at the attention to detail on some of the boutique builders...but this one...man, this one is the coolest.

    The tone is equally as impressive. It can go from a whisper to a roar with the slightest variation in plucking hand technique. I love the fact that it is passive. It just works for this bass.

    The scale length also adds to the charactor. It has a nice low end to it, but doesn't lack in the mids or highs.

    I'm still learning about it's nuances, so I can't give a full review yet--but, I am loving the bass.
