    Price:
    4195.00
    Strings:
    4
    Location:
    New Jersey
    Note: This NYC is $5475 if new... and yes, it is the Holy Grail of Sadowsky NYC :)

    Up for sale only (No Trades, sorry) is an amazing custom NYC Sadowsky I put together (7-month wait and all) with Roger. Its personally hand picked Master Grade Flame Maple Top under that glassy candy clear coat finish & Master Grade Fretboard.
    I made a special request that it be a single one piece solid non-chambered Ash body that would come out to be a total weight of approx. 8.5lbs. Roger nailed it!

    She sounds amazing. The notes jump off this bass with authority in typical Ash/Maple Sadowsky punchy fashion... but this NYC is special due to the non-chambered solid single piece ash body, she really punches, hard! Most NYC's are chambered... this is just my opinion but Ive always been a fan of the non-chambered ash sound more... to me its more solid and fundamental.

    Its in mint condition as this was never gigged with. Seriously show room condition, if not better. No scratches, dings, etc... she is an essentially new bass guys, I can't stress this enough. This stayed in my practice room / office at all times / smoke free home.

    Specs: 8.6lbs - weight perfection for a non-chambered 4 string.
    Serial # 6326
    Single One Piece Non-Chambered Ash Body - custom request.
    9" Radius (great vintage feel IMO)
    1.5" Nut Width
    Master Grade Flame Maple
    Master Grade Flame Fretboard
    Sadowsk's Nordy Wound True Single Coils
    Black hardware

    Price: $4195 Shipped. ($5475 if new)
    No Trades. I will entertain reasonable offers.
    PM me if your intetested.

    Wow - that's almost a spitting image of my old Sadowsky 4. Gorgeous and one of my favourite looks in a Sadowsky. Best of luck with the sale and the new home!

    I'm guessing it's a 1.45" nut width, is it a 9 or 12" radius?

    Great question! Typical Sadowsky is 12" but I requested the great feel of that vintage 9" Radius. Roger offers both. 1.5" Nut as well...

    Very sweet.
    Nice touch with the 9" radius neck and the non-chambered body. This must be a serious funk machine. GLWTS!
