Hey Nino, I got my Sadowsky yesterday. Holy crap, what an amazing instrument! First thing I did was wack that open E, and it just sounded amazing. The build quality is exceptional, and the fretwork is definately the best I've seen. It's a lovely bass to play, but one thing I found is that it's not very forgiving. It really highlights sloppy playing. I mentioned this to Roger this morning, and he said a few people had mentioned the same thing, so at least I know I'm not the only sloppy bassplayer in the world!! The clarity of the notes is just incredible, and I've also found that it really responds to my playing changes. If I want a different sound, rather than just go for the eq, it seems more capable of reflecting the way I'm playing. As I'm sure is abundantly clear, I'm VERY happy! Anyway, just want to let you know that I got it (and to stick my tongue out and say "beat ya, beat ya"!) Let us know when your one arrives. Cheers, bassaussie.
