    Hello mate, I'm searching for this model for weeks as M5-24, and accidental found your ad, because the site didn't show it in search window as you titled it 5-24...
    So, located in Maryland, US? Well, I'm in EU, and should prefer a European seller because of the high taxes, and VAT.

    Thank you for reading my advice!

    I know you are, but what am I?
    Wow, that is beautiful.
    Would you trade for a rusted-out lawnmower and a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts?
    Good luck with the sale. Looks like a killer bass.

    You should consider going across the dam and and pick it up in person, might be cheaper than getting it shipped and having to pay import taxes etc. I got my last buy shipped and had to pay a whole lot of import tax, later I discovered I could have gone to Florida roundtrip almost two times for the same amount... well well. :)

    Btw, beautiful bass, wish I had the money... sigh.

    Yes, maybe you're right, but if the airport customs caught the babe, must I pay the fees for it as well? And trans-atlantic flight is also very expensive from here, Hungary...
    I'm still hunting for a European located item... maybe...

    This was my bass for several years ; all I can say is that I have owned around 13 Sadowskys (all of them were amazing) but this is the BEST ONE for sure; the TONE is just out of this world .

    I think if you had really 13! Sadowskys, you should consider something else, another brand...
    I owed 2 instruments for decades, and one of them will follow me to the grave I think..

    These Modern models are REALLY awesome! Mine is all stock and the tone is quite aggressive and "Grindy"! I had the Treble and VTC cranked along with the gain on my amp. It did not disappoint! Cut through 2 heavy guitars easily and even better than my most basses designed to cut, like the Stingray. The final result was an over-driven, vintage-style Grind and grit. No pedals needed and it killed!! *Best part is that these are easily tamed to play Blues/Jazz/Reggae with a quick dialing-in of YOUR tone. Fit and finish are outstanding.
    Man, If I ever needed a 5er, this would be the one...


    (please pm me if you don't agree and I'll remove my post, Just thought I'd mention how sweet these really are and worth the investment.)
