    Was just looking at, yes, another Sadowsky. So sue me.

    Anyway, my wife is very understanding about gear since they are tools of my trade.

    I show her a Sadowsky I am considering buying and she says "you've got SAS."

    I said "what the hell does that mean?"

    She replies "Sadowsky Acquisition Syndrome."

    I love it. Dead on too! LOL

    That's funny mike, I guess lately I have been suffering from SAS as well ( Schroeder aquistion syndrome) :smug: I recently purchased a 21012 cab, a 1212 and now have a 1210 on the way. I may end up with three cabs. Good thing I have an understanding wife.

    Please do me a favor and buy the 25th Anniversary Edition #4318 so I can put an end to the internal struggle I've been dealing with for about two weeks now.

    so, a side question. Is there a LOT of difference between the tone on a modern 24 fret and a vintage? or do they maintain some sort of commom Sadowsky tone?

    Hey bro -

    Huge difference! And I like them both. I find the soaps have a more forward mid section than the jazz. They are also cleaner (not really growly) but have tons of clean, pure booty. I am definitely looking to add one to my aresenal!

    I played a Metro 24 at a country rehearsal about 2 motnhs ago and it was awesome. I might even prefer it for country over the jazz. Not sure until I buy one and A/B them side by side! :D
