... Funny enough, I think it was the one from Craigslist Providence - only it was in a Guitar Center! An MV4, from NAMM 2004, written on the back of the headstock. Sort of a brownish burst. Dots. Blech, I do despise dots. ..any way, it wasn't half bad! Is $1600 steep for this bass? Mint. More than I'd pay, but I don't know if it is collectible being a NAMM bass and all. Nice setup, which I never find in a store! Real nice player, good tone but not my cup of tea, pretty mellow and smooth. The first Sadowsky that impressed me. I must be getting senile.
