Well, I'd like to have this bass: <a href="http://sadowsky.com/stock/images/3648_full.jpg"><img src="http://sadowsky.com/stock/images/3648_full.jpg" width=450></a> Click on bass to see bigger picture. The only way I could get another Sadowsky if I can find it used & even used I don't think I could afford it. I was looking on the Lakland site & I see that Dan is making a SkyLine Osborn bass (Jazz BAss). I email Dan on a Saturday <font size=1>(about 2 weeks ago)</font> to see if he plans to make a SkyLine Osborne 5 string. I expected an answer on that Monday or Tuesday. I check ny mail a few hours later & there was a reply from Dan!!!! WOW. That's fast. He plans to make a SL Osborne 5 string & it should be available by Sept. <font size=1>(Right in time for my birthday is in Sept )</font> This morning I'm wondering yo myself if the SL Osborne 5 string neck is going to similar to my SL 55-01. I email Dan again & low & behold I get a response about an hour later. The eck on my 55-01 is my 2nd favorite feeling 5 string neck. My Sadowsky 24 fret being the best & Sadowsky Vintage 5 being 3rd. The bass comes stock w/Lindy Frailin pickups & I plan to put a Sadowsky Pre-amp in the bass. I'm going to leave the LF p/u's in it. How good are the Lindy Frailin pickups? Does anyone have them in their bass?
