    I was looking around my computer & on TB for a nice picture of my Sadowsky Vintage 4 & I couldn't find any. :( So I took a bunch so I figured I'd post them here, again. LOL!!!!

    Yeah, I wanted to refinish it in '59 Burst but I deceied not to. I just bought a '59 Burst Sadowsky RB5 that quenched my GAS for that color. :)

    The RB5 has become my main bass since I got it. It's been to every rehearsal (~10) & gig (2).

    I did just pull the 24 fret 5 out of the case & I played it on my couch for a few minutes & it is still by far the best bass I've ever owned or played in my life.

    When you come to pick yours up, let me know & I'll bring a few of mine into work with me. :)

    Thanks Nino:) I would like to see and play your 24 fret and your standard 4, that is some top and finish on it. Whats your next Sadowsky going to be, I am sure you have an idea in the works;)

    I haven't deceided yet.

    It's either going to be a Warmoth (AKA-Valenti Bass) or a Sadowsky, meybe another Tokyo. But it will be like this.

    -Vinatge 5 string
    -Ash body
    -Morado board
    -LakePlacid blue with matching h/s
    -Mint green p/g
    -Chrome hardware

    Kinda like the Vintage 4 I owned & traded away.
