My new Sadowsky.

  1. Hey all,

    For my 18th birthday earlier this month I was extremely lucky to receive an awe inspiring Sadowsky metro p/j.

    I'm sure you all know the specs, but mine is trans white. A really nice creamy, buttery trans white (even though the pics may not show it).

    She plays like a dream, easily the best bass ive played. Sounds huge although quite bright and zingy but without being harsh. I'm not sure how to describe it haha. Just massive. Yeah, that works.

    Enough chit chat, down to some pics. They were taken at the shop so they're the best I have.

  2. Very nice.

    I just (last month) got a fender P with the same color scheme, but solid white.

    Love the combo.

    That looks like a fantastic bass!

    Grats!
     
  3. Thanks mate!

    Yeah I was looking at a fender P also, but then this popped up. Was orininally after olympic white, but this came up and i couldnt resist.
     
  4. LUCKY!!!

    The only thing I can possibly see wrong with it is that it's missing a string.:bag:

    However, being that it's trans white (I've grown quite fond of trans white in the past year) I still want it.
     
  5. When I turned 18 I think I got a watch :/

    Congrats on the bass. Its beautiful. I love trans white. :)

    Nice one!

    When I got 18 I got nothing from my parents and had to work 10 hours that day (and I went to school at that time).
    I hope you appreciate that bass enough ;)

    very nice! Sadowsky PJs rock!

    congratulations and enjoy it.

    If you find the tone a little bit too bright you should try the Sadowsky Blue Label nickels or if you are even more for the old school tone, try the Sadowsky flats.

    Nah, I know a 17 year old who takes the cake. :D

    Beautiful bass man, Im jealous! The 'rents said Il probably be getting a "professional" bass when I graduate, but Ill probably chip in.

    I think my Fenders are professional, but Im not gonna pass up a Clement, Sadowsky, Valenti, etc. ;)
