This bass is killer!! Sadowsky Ultra Vintage Metro #822 Ash body - 3 tone sunburst Maple Fingerboard - Pearl inlays Tortis guard Single coil pickups Vintage tone control Hipshot I got it yesterday and haven't had a chance to take it on a gig yet but it is fat! I will post some picks soon, i had some from sadowsky in my "what colour pickguard thread" but i'll take some now i have the bass. I'm really glad i went with the single coils. with the 70's pu placement this thing really barks and growls! i took it with a friend to the basscentre in melbourne where i usually get my gear and nothing prepared me for how fat it would be through just a wt400 and an 8ohm quad! It doesn't get scooped though! just to be silly i had the pus blended, bass 80% treble 50% and it was just a huge full punchy tone that wasn't even too bright!!! part of that is the ampeg quad but it was one of the newer ones, not a classic. this is still with the stainless strings too and i usually like nickle!!!! man slapping like that was nuts!!! the finish on teh back of the neck is magic too! so smooth! i was also very impressed with the consistancy of tone and volume from the open E to the highest Eb. no dead spots, not change of sound, just huge punchy tone on every note. as you can see i'm pretty excited and am probably typing so fast this isn't making sense. but being a student deciding to spend $5000aus dollars getting a sadowsky shipped having never played one was always a risk. i could not be happier!!!
