    With the help of a few of you on TB, Roger and Beaver at BC - I am now an owner and believer in Sadowsky basses. As my signature says - I am in constant search for the tone I hear in my head - and these get mighty darn close.

  2. Pretty!

    I just acquired a Fender Jazz Bass V that lookes exactly like your white one. And I LOVE the tone.

    Congrats!

    Nice, I s'pose. :rolleyes: You'll have to forgive me. We one Sadowsky owners aren't nice to those who have more than one. In fact, you shouldn't be around when the sun sets. :ninja:

    Guess I'm glad I didn't include the picture of the new UV70-5 I just got, too!!! :bag:

    (Still deciding whether or not I am going to keep it - natural - black guard, maple board, black binding and blocks. 2 months old - still has the plastic on the pickguard - maybe 30 minutes of playtime on it)

    Nice! If you have a minute, I'd love a comparison between the Dingwall you owned and the maple 4 string Sadowsky.

    Nice!


    ...but it looks like the frets weren't put in quite right.

    Did you know the abbreviation for BurningSkies is BS!:D

    The frets are just fine for me - as were the Dingwalls. But you know - if you remember my posts on the Dingwall forum - I haven't had my finger pain since I sold the Super J. Guess I had a slight incompatibility with the SJ.

    Marshall - Construction-wise both the Dingwall Super J and the Sadowsky MV4 are incredibly well made. The Dingy had a multi-piece neck which felt like butter in my hands. The neck on the MV4 is one piece and feels very good too. Tone wise - I like the sound of the MV4 better - more traditional/vintage. The Dingwall SJ has a more powerful modern tone. As mentioned above - I developed some finger pain on my left hand shortly after getting the Super J - it has gone away since I sold it. I think it was from a combination of the shorter scale and the fanned frets, with the shorter scale probably being more of the culprit. I had a Dingwall Prima, Afterburner I-5 and an Afterburner II-4, all with 34" G strings. None of these gave me the finger pain.

    Its my unique charm...you didn't think I could let you slide by without a comment, did you?

    I have to be honest, as much as I like the Super-J its not currently something I really want. I prefer the longer scales of the 'traditional' Dingwalls.

    I'm glad you found a bass you like and that doesn't injure you.

    Thanks for the comparison. I forgot that the Super Jazz is a smaller scale...Glad these basses are working for you!

    Thanks - and I agree - I liked the longer scale Dingwalls better than the SJ. Kinda wish I hadn't sold the ABII-4.

    There's been an AB1 four string in the TB classifieds that I don't think has sold...
