I've never seen one in person(that I can recall), much less, played one, but I have become completely obsessed with getting a Sadowsky. Now, they've been on my GAS list for as long as I've known about them, but I've always managed to repress my need for Fender-esque basses until recently. I woke up one day a few months ago a decided that it was time for a Fender, since I'd never owned one in the 20+ years I've been plucking around on these things. It just happened to coincide with a band change. I went from a modern/hard rock group to a top-40/pop/70's-today group. I sold my USA Spector Forte5 and my Modulus Q5W and bought a MusicMan StingRay 5HH and an American Deluxe Jazz Bass V. I love both of these basses(except for the gold hardware on the 'Ray, but that's another story), but every time I pick up the Jazz, all I keep thinking is "I wish this was a Sadowsky!". Here's the other thing, I know if I were to get a Sadowsky, I'd probably opt for an M5-24, which is probably the least Jazz Bass-sounding Jazz bass in their lineup. Another "issue" would be I'd have to be looking at a Metro, which probably isn't an issue at all, but only you guys & gals that own them can answer that for me, but I don't have the flow for an NYC Sadowsky. Yeah, I could swap p/ups & electronics in the Jazz, but I don't hate the way my Jazz sounds or plays(it is a bit noisy though, which is irritating but manageable and fixable). I just think I'd be happier with a Sadowsky?? So, should I: 1) Sell or trade the Jazz, get a Sadowsky, and shut up... 2) Put some new guts in the Jazz, FORget the Sadowsky, and shut up... 3) Keep the Jazz, eat ramen noodles til you can afford a Sadowsky, have both, and shut up... 4) Just shut up(Can't believe I'm giving you guys this option-) Other than finishing my pedalboard, getting a Sadowsky is all I think about, bass-wise. It's a bit disturbing... Thanks!
