    This ended on Ebay Sunday night without reaching reserve( no wonder! WOW!) I contacted the seller and he let me have it cheaper, but at the high end of what I wanted to pay. But it's worth it, Wow, what a beautiful bass. I met him about 10 miles from my house. I've owned a Metro MV5 but like the light weight of this 4(8.5lbs). Well gotta get back with it and get use to a 4 string again!

    Am I the only one that really dislikes the pink finish?

    Surprisingly, I LOVE that finish.

    Congratulations man, that is indeed an "uber hawt" bass.

    I wish it were mine.
  4. I think it's cool and funky :cool:

    In person it's more like a "faded out" orange!
    Pink is such a strong word! :)
    I was worried about liking it but seeing it in person I do like it well!

    Beautiful bass - that salmon pink with the tort guard is my favorite of all the Sadowsky color schemes. I was one of th early bidders in that auction, but the price pretty quickly went well north of what I wanted to pay. Smart play contacting the seller before he relisted.
  12. salmon pink with tort guard is pretty much my dream bass. I'd prefer a P, but J would be nice too. Congrats!

    I don't find the pink thrilling, but it's a Sadowsky I'm sure you'll suffer thru it! :D

    Congrats, that's one of those colors I'd never choose, but I love to look at.

    It has single coils, can you please comment on the difference in tone with the hc? I'd also like to know about the amount of hum they can produce.
