After long debate and research, I ordered a Sadowsky today. I ordered a Vintage 5 with a 59' burst finish over quilted maple on top of an alder body. The bass will have a morado fingerbaord with chrome hardware and a pearloid pickguard. I was debating between a Celinder Vintage 5 or the Sadowsky Vintage 5. I still want a Celinder, but I think I did the right thing by holding off. The fact that they are based in Europe really was a big factor in my decision process. I was dealing with the guys at the BassPalace on the Celinder. Altough I am sure there great people, I just got a weird vibe from them. That too was another factor. I expect my Lakland 55-94 will end up seeing less of me when the Sadowsky arrives in 6 months. You guys think I made the right choice by choosing Sadowsky over Celinder?
