  4. Beautiful! And, I know I don't even need to ask about the sound, playability or workmanship!

    Congrats!!

  5. Looks awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It seems unique for a Sadowsky as it's a 21 fret on standard body but...has the controls or knobs positioned like the 24F 5 string, no?

    Yeah, I went with the 24 fret control layout. I like it (visually) better then the Standard Jazz layout & I have a 24 fret 5 string & it looks more uniform in my collection.
     
  8. Nino,

    1. You're bad for my g.a.s.
    2. I haven't gotten my Sadowsky spalt PJ4 and I'm lusting for a 5 string fretted and fretless.
    3. Since you play 'em all at the shop, any comments on alder vs swamp ash and fingerboard when it comes to tone on the Sadowsky fretless models?
    4. Somebody STOP me!
