    Yesterday on December 19th at 1530 hrs I went to Sadowsky Guitars to pick up my RB 5 bass.All i can say is this is got the best low B string i have ever played, i find it to have much more deffinition and punch as compared to my Warwick Infinity and the Sadowsky is a 34 inc scale. The quality is top notch, i can honestly say Roger will not put his name on garbage and even tough these basses are made by hand in Tokyo i would say the would play against any high end USA bass.The Tokyo basses in my opinion are far supiror to all the skyline basses i have played, they really are in two diffrent leagues no comparison could be made in quality.I had a great expirence when i visited the shop, i was first greeted by the shop dog, dot and then by the staff and they unvailed bass. It is kind of like when you see your tattoo for the first time and you are just so delighted by the way it turned out. I was very lucky i was able to see some of Jason Newsteds basses in for work and i even got one of his picks, great stuff.This bass gets my 2 thumbs up. heres some pics http://sadowsky.com/stock/view/62371.html

    Dang, man, that's pretty schweet. Now that I'm back on a Fender-style kick again, those Sadowskys (Sadowskies?) are looking pretty good. :)

    I like these much better than the American models actually. Way more realistic in price and built by Yoshi of Atilier Z fame.
    I got on to a Japanese sight recently and it seems way more colors and configurations are avalible there than here. It's a shame really. I am pretty sure it is to help justify the outragous prices of the American models.

    Umm.... today is the 20th.


    Congrats. Too bad I didn't get to meet you. My daughter was sick & I had to take off & tend to her.

    That's a VERY nice bass. I played it for a little before I put it in the case & into the store room.

    My question is, why not just get an Atelier Z then? Don't they cost the same? Plus man that Sadowsky head stock is ugly.
