I just got my new NYC Sadowsky and I must say-IT IS FROCKIN' FANTASTIC!!!!!! I have been playing basses since 1973 and I have had them ALL! My poor old Dad took me to the local music store and bought me a used 1962 Pecision Bass for my first intrument in '73...I have had Old Fender Jazz basses,Telecaster basses,Precisions,Gibson EB3's,Tobias,Modulus,Warwick,MusicMan-including B series,Stingrays,Sterlings...Custom Colored Fender '60's basses,G&L,Lakland-the list goes on & on!!!But the BEST PLAYING,SOUNDING and LOOKING basses that I have EVER owned came from Roger Sadowsky!My new Vintage Jazz Seafoam Green with matching headstock,21 frets,brazilian rosewood with pearl dots is SO GREAT that I have been thinking of actually having it GRAFTED to me!!!I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN!!!! If you get one-YOU WILL KNOW!!!!!
