Looking for T-Basser opinions between these two P-style basses. Thanks
I've never played a Glaub but did have the honor of playing a Sad P about a month ago at the shop in NYC. WOW! I loved it. If I could have justified a 4th Sadowsky, I would have been all over it. Full size body, sad p/u and preamp(the best pre on earth, IMO), beautifully finished, fretwork perfect, etc. I owned a Lakland Deluxe 4 a couple years back. Beautifully put together, awesome quilt top, etc. I didn't care for the tones I got out of the bass which forced me to sell. What I think is awesome might be the opposite for you and vice versa. I'd do my best to try both and make up your own mind.
Thanks for the re bp. I am definitely leaning toward the Sadowsky, especially with the P/J config.
Does anybody here own a Glaub that they would like to comment on?
Don't get me wrong I like Lakland but if the choice is any Lakland model vs the corresponding Sadowsky model I would take the Sadowsky every time.
I once owned this USA Glaub. I only sold it because I wanted one with a maple fret board. We a/b'd it against a matching 68 p-bass. The sound was identical and the Glaub had more output. For the money, I'd go with the USA Glaub.
Any idea of street prices for these two basses?
if you're a BIG time p bass guy, then the sadowsky. but if not, and you just want something really nice to add to the arsenal, save the moolah, and get the Glaub. played a nice sunburst a few weeks ago, and it was too cool for school. if i'm not mistaken, had Lindy Fralin pbass pickup which was very nice. punchie, bold and butt kickin'. course, i went back and it was gone in a matter days.
