Got the latest addition to my Sadowsky collection this week. I don't know how to post the picture, but it's on Rogers web site under basses recently sold #4068. This is my first PJ combination. Out of the box this bass has tremendous resonance acoustically unplugged. It has gobs of sustain. I recieved it on tuesday and took it to a blues gig that night. I set it on the P pickup and it's classic p bass warmth and growl, slightly different than my '61 P bass, but very close. It's not better or worse, just a very slightly different flavor. The J bass seems a little brighter than a vintage J but also close. The blend setting is really where this bass really happens...fantastic. The blend gives me a warm growl with clarity and punch, the best of the PJ world! The bass is a very reasonable 9 lbs. The neck balances perfectly, and the low B string is focused and clear. Of course the workmanship is beyond great. The maple flame on the front is truly exceptional. This makes my 3rd 5 string Sadowsky. I got the modern stuff covered with my spalted maple 24, classic rock covered with my Vintage J, and the blues thing covered with this PJ. The only other Sadowsky I might want in the future is a fretless for jazz. Thank you Roger, Nino and the gang for another work of art that I will treasure for many years to come. I also have come to the conclusion that it's not the price of a Sadowsky that is expensive, it's the $50-100k you spend buying and selling all the other basses until you finally come to the unescapable conclusion that the Sadowsky's are the ones that "do it" for you. I gotta stop checking the Sadowsky web site....it hurts my wallet everytime I look.
