    Nino, I have been thinking about another 5 strings, standard, with birdeye fingerboard, with newly developed passive soapbar made by Basslines,
    what do you think?
    I have to get rid some of my basses since they only get the dust.

    When I was there, he had the BassLines in a bass & I liked them alot!!!! Wery warm sounding. Not as "sterile" as the EMG's (I like sterile :D). If I had enough money I'd get another w/the BassLines. The only way I could get one now is to sell basses I don't wanna sell. :( So no new Sadowsky for me for a while.

    P.S. I think that Roger will only put the "soapbars" (new BassLines/EMG 40's) in 24 fret 5 strings. :(
     
  5. Here are my 3 Sadowsky instruments. Two are guitars but I hope the Talkbass community forgives me for posting them here. The birdseye maple board-headstock belongs to the swirl strat:

    Thanks. I really wanted something w/a quilted top but I went to Roger's shop & he had this bass & the same bass w/a quilted top (I can't wait 6 months for a bass :)) & the natural played better than the quilted so I went w/it. I had to wait 4 weeks for it though. I had Roger change the hardware from chrome to black & the bridge was back-ordered. Thise 4 weeks were like tourture!!!! :)
