Thats one great lookin bass - really traditional, kinda Jaco Style look...
What do you think ?
nahhhhh, get a squire.
and a CRATE 50 WATT COMBO!
Get a Squire !! Get a Crate Combo !!! Be proud to be American !!!!
Uhhhh Squires are Indonesian..... or Chinese... or Mexican.... not american
Get a Sadowsky ... but not that one. Didn't you notice? It doesn't have its fifth string.
Hmn...Upon second inspection, you appear to be half right. It also appears to be missing it's sixth. How odd. I though Roger payed more attention to detail. Oh well....
Though, I do like the quilt on that one. Not to much quilt, and with a great tobacco burst. But, unfortunatly, they aren't my bag...I just don't like em. Pity, such nice looking basses.
It looks very elegant. The more I play my Sadowsky jazz standard 4 sting the more I swoon. Not that I didn't when I first got it. Playing it is really great therapy for me after all atrocities that have occurred this week.
And the bass is made in America too.
What 's wrong with made in Indonesia, China or Mex? It serves the purpose, besides the Indonesian factory produces 40,000 guitar and basses for Fender, Washburn, aand all the big names.
mhhhmmm....Another Copy Cat...
mhhhmm......The Original (introduced in 1960)...
Clarence Leo Fender
Agreed but Sadowsky takes the Fender bass and guitar to a whole different level of sound, versatility, service, quality contol, etcetera. Think Fender on massive doses of steroids and supplements. Or...
Fender is to Sadowsky what
Callaway or Lingenfelter are to Corvette
Ruff to Porsche
Hennessey to Viper
Play one and you'll know.
Making 40,000+ guitars. I guess that is why the attention to detail is so stressed @ these factories.

This factory belong to Samick, they make guitar , basses and piano under their own brand for export market as well as they make OEM product for Fender, Squire, Epiphone, Washburn and other famous names. They make 40,000 permonths.
Their quality is cater for lower market, but they give me form time to time a really good bass and guitar, they say out of thousand when the wood combination produce good tones.[I used to supply some machinery to them].
Well as for Sadowsky tone is unbeatable, at the top of my bass collection [ over 20]. That is why I own 2 of them and I am quite sure I am going to have the 3rd one soon.
Just finished my gig this afternoon , again the tone amazes the people.
Over 20?! GAWK!
Yes, the problem is to keep the maintenance because I am so lazy, and in my country high end basses cannot be sold easily, not many people can afford it, that is why the basses piled up. I only use Sadowskies and 78 Musicman , sometime Lakland, or Warwick Thumbbolt, that is all . Other than that rarely touched, Pedulla ..Dolphin .. Alembic .. many times thinking to sell them just to avoid maintenance because I have to clean dust and keep the air con running 24hrs everyday to keep moisture low because Indonesia is so humid.
You ought to trade them suckers for a made in American Fender pal. Fenders have no problems with humidity and very versital. Your local Fender dealer might take one in on trade, depending on his
availability and ability to get rid of those Pedullas
and other off brands like Alembics and stuff.
Get rid of the garbage and get yourself a Fender.
There's alway Ebay. I have sold a couple of thinks internationally and they went pretty smooth.
Ahem... that's "Ruf". Ruff was Astro's favorite word on the Jetsons.
Lier, lier, lalalala-lier
OK, seriously: Fender has major problem with humidity changes, including MIA, including CS, everything. In this country, we reintonate, tweek trusses etc continuously, that is minimum four times a year. If we're a little touchy about intonation and fret buzz with low action, anyway - like me.
(They share this problem with most producers of wooden basses)
Fender is known as universal, rather than versatile. The sound is welcome anywhere, because it's recognised. Any dual humbucker bass is more versatile. And I believe there are a few...
Finally: they are neck heavy. ¤puke¤
