    I just picked up this awesome Sadowsky Standard 4 NYC! Made in '96, it features an Ash body with Quilted Maple top, Flame Maple fingerboard on Maple neck. The bass is finished in Caramel burst. Sadowsky humcancelling pickups(active/passive).

    This is the best bass that I have had the chance to play. It plays like butter with super low action. Great feeling neck. It sounds absolutely killer. Tight deep lows, and crisp sparkling highs. It nails the modern Jazz bass tone(actually I guess that it is the modern Jazz bass tone;) ). I have never had a bass like this. There certainly is some magic. Check it out:
     
  2. Gorgeous bass! Congratulations.

    I know eh? I have owned more basses than I care to admit. I am really happy with this one! I have always been a Jazz bass guy, and these basses are just it! Got to get back to practice...new charts to work on...

    i just got my first sadowsky a few months ago and it just grooves harder then anything else i've used. Never gotten more compliments from so many non-bass plaing muscian's on an axe. I've got a 24 frt 5 string on order . . only five more months to wait! I think i'm going to have to get a fretless, too . . .
