Ok, here's the situation. I was saving cash on the side so when the trans blue Sadowsky was done I'd pay most of it w/cash & put the remaining balance on my American Express card. Good plan!!!! BUT in posting pictures of my "Almost Ready" trans blue Sadowsky a member e-mails me. I forget his TB name but his real name is Daniel K (GREAT GUY). He tells me he has a Sadowsky Vintage 4 he wants to sell.... ...To make a REALLY long story short, I know have 2 new Sadowsky vintage 4 strings!!!!!! I spoke to Roger about the Lake Placid Blue bass & he said everything was OK (not being stolen or anything like that) & that this bass would cost (I believe) $3300 w/the upgrades (matching headstock, vintage style, Brazilian rosewood board) & a 4 month wait. Well I've been wanting a Lake Placid Blue Jazz bass for the longest time & I was considering a Fender '62 Re-Issue. I got the bass for $1950. I think that is a SUPER price & I COULDN'T pass it up @ that price!!!!! Yes, I know I'm NUT'S!!!!! But a nut has to do what a nut has to do!!!!! <a href="http://community-2.webtv.net/hotmail.com/theoremnews/sadowsky4/">CLICK HERE</a> to see the basses!!!! I have a favor to ask. I usually don't do polls but I feel the need to. Should I put the neck pick-up cover's on the bass or not? I haven't really played them yet. Actually I haven't really taked the LPBlue out of the case except for the picture because my wife don't know about it. LAMO!!! I played the Trans Blue in Roger's shop for a long while & it's a BEAUTY!!!!! P.S. Yes I know I'm NUTS!!!!!!
