    You guys are absolutely killing me with all these beautiful pictures, rave reviews, etc., etc. Enough already! It is tourture! I keep looking at things around the house saying, hmmm... if I sold these 100 DVDs for $5 each, let's see... that's $500. Only $3,000 to go. Then I could sell that china cabinet - that's easily worth another $500. Wait, that belongs to my wife. Well, maybe she wouldn't miss it. Only $2500 to go...

    You guys are going to get me into serious trouble. :bag:

    How much does a kidney go for?
    EDIT: ah we think alike.

    True :) , only if it was for another Sadowsky. :D
     
  6. Kidneys, depending on your HLA fetch, between an average of $50,000 depending on the country and black market you deal with. YMMV.

    Whoa. Good show, batman.
     
  8. You have to be hepatis and HIV negative as well as lack diabetes mellitus, hypertension, renal insufficiency or cancer.

    If you are really creative and can run fast, you can purchase a bovine kidney at the butcher shop, bring to Roger's shop, and make a direct trade and hit the subway before he notices that's it's not a human kidney. I'm sure he'd be thrilled to have the organs piling up in a corner.

    Then let me try this:

    Dear Mr Sadowsky,

    I think you make the finest basses on the planet - beautiful and sonically wonderful. If you read this and would like to perform a great community service, please consider sending me a Vintage 5. It would be a great thing and I would happily tell eveyone I know how great you and your company truly are. If I make it big one day, I will most gladly pay you back.

    Let me know where I can send you my mailing address. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

    :bassist:

  16. Call Roger and ask him. I think it would be awesome if he responded "yer kidneying me, right?"


    *"kidding me?
