    If you ordered it from Sadowsky, it would be a special order and will run you around 4100.

    $2700 plus shipping and insurance.

    A lot of times the clear Sadowsky half-pickguards are mounted with a special clear adhesive where there are no screw holes. The pickguard and adhesive can be removed ... as I've been told by a couple of guys and Roger himself. Not sure how it's mounted on this particular bass though.

    I am curious about the clear pickguard for my own Metro. Is that something I can buy from Roger and put on with adhesive as suggested in an earlier post? Beautiful bass though. If I didn't have such a GAS debt I would seriously consider this bass.

  8. that truly is a beautifull bass.
    I've been GASsing for a Sadowsky for a while now, but unfortunately I have no money. Hope you can sell it
  9. Bump for my friend..
  10. I've played this bass & this sounds really deeper & focused than JJ pick up configu...
    If you want punch & fat sound out of Sadowsky, this is yours.

    bump for my friend.. :cool:
  11. It's still available.

    Bump for a beautiful bass.

    I just posted my Fodera up for sale.
    If it sells in a timely manner, then your Sadowsky may become mine.
