    Nice collection! If only I liked Fender-style and Spector basses... I've had both (Euro 5 and American Standard Jazz V) and didn't like either of them, lol. But it sure is nice to look at.

    The TV is actually only 6" wide. It's just really tall.

    Hey Nino, tell us a bit about that 24 fret J/J Sadowsky. I thought Roger was against this idea, but had made a single example for Jason Newstead. That's not the same bass, is it?

    i don't think that's jason's one because his has a GIANT chunk missing from the Headstock and the one in the picture look alright. And Jason has that metal pickguard thing that jazz basses have. so roger won't make any 24 fret J/J's? and i was gassing bad for one of those.

    Actually, the one with a giant chunk missing is a Vinatge 5, IIRC. It was in the Sadowsky shop a while back for, I believe, a fret job. I have a picture of me with it somewhere, but I can't find it.

    Roger has kept the dual J 24 fret 5 in the line but warns potential buyers that it's not really set up for slapping since the neck pick up is very close to the neck heel & there is not that much space for popping. Also, if you slap hard enough, the string might hit the neck pick up causing unwanted noise.
     
  18. Wow...

    I need to hang out with you.

    This bass was my main gigging bass for a few months but I traded it for the Spector NS-2J USA since I didn't have the money for it:

    Also, I've just about deceided to keep this one. I had a feeling it would move quick but I was wrong:

    I actually am one very lucky man because I have a beautiful wife that loves me.

    Also she knew before we got married that I was a compulsive gear nut & knew I couldn't change.
