    Newstead plays Sadowsky Basses www.sadowsky.com, and not Fender Jazz basses, although you could be forgiven for mistaking the two! :D

    I do believe all his Hipshot Jazz's have Hipshot Ultralites with Elephant Ear keys.

    I think Nino-Brown has played one or two of Newsted's Sadowskys. He could probably give quite a bit of info on them.

    I think Jason's Sadowsky were built with Hip Shot ultralight tunners.
