    Well I have $2500 to burn, and I want a high end jazz (not Fender) and it has to be sweet for metal, bring on the suggestions!

    Since I live in a rathole that mainly carries big companies, I can't get one of those luthier made thingys, so I need to get a bass that's made by a company that's high end...You know what I'm saying?

    You could get a luthier made "thingy" and have them ship it to you. There are plenty of luthiers on this board who can help you out, and I'm sure you'll get something quite nice in your price range.

    All shipping and mail service here is completely corrupt, anything of any value here is always stolen.

    It's Thailand...Ya know....

    Oh...I didn't know you were in Thailand. If you can't have anything shipped in, I wouldn't know what you have in stores there.

    Good Lord!!!! You can't get anything shipped without it being stolen???? I guess we take alot of things for granted. I may have to worry about the UPS man dropping it off the truck, but I don't worry he'll steal it!!!!

    It is hard to advise you as most of us don't have a clue as to what is available in your part of the world.

    I contacted customer service Sadowsky, and the dude said maybe 6-8 months to build a bass for me.

    My parents are going to New York next week, so if they can find something for me there......

    Sounding good, looking good and leading the band with a good, punchy, carrying tone is what I have to do.

    Well if there's ready made stuff at his shop that my mom can take pictures of and email me while she's in New York I could get something there without trying it. I trust Sadowsky's ability enough to know he makes good stuff.

    It'll take him like 6-8 months to make me a 5 string NYC bass. There's no way I can go through UPS or anything, because the mail system and stuff is SO bad. Stuff either gets lost or stolen.

    I'd imagine this is what he'll have "in stock" at his store... http://www.sadowsky.com/stock/nyc_b_is.html
    That black Vintage PJ looks mighty Metal to me... lovely.

    I basically want a NYC Standard 5 with a nice color that shows off the quilted maple. Don't really care what the fretboard is, preferably maple.
