    And i wanted to know if he was building anything for Jason Newsted, he is. A 24 fret 5 string in black with J pick ups. He also let me know that Jason has 18 sadowsky basses, WOW. I only heard of 8 but their were more that he got, like some sherwood green basses. Jason is a true Musican and i hope he keeps rockin:bassist:

    Oh my god : he must have the biggest Sadowsky collection.
     
  3. He only bought so many so he has more than Nino-Brown.

    guess on the cost os all those basses:eek:
     
  5. Let's say $2500 x 16. He got one for free for buying 8, so maybe he got another one for free.

    2500 x 16 = $40,000. :eek:

    And when you have as much $ as Jason(probably)does, 40 grand is a drop in a bucket.
     
  8. i would imagine that jason gets a very, VERY good deal from roger.
     
  9. the BP interview from 1995 listed 2 PJ 4strings, various J 4strings, 21fret J 5strings, 24fret EMG soapbar 5strings.

    Sadowsky listed him as a user of the PJ 5string as well.

    most of his basses have maple fingerboards, but he has a rosewood board 4string J and a pau ferro-board 5string J.

    in Bassist he said he sometimes uses BEAD tuning on a 4 string, so maybe some are strung like that too.
    so there's various permutations that can make up the numbers, plus different colours, of course:D

    Roger once said that Jason paid the normal price.
