    Here's an update on this Sadowsky/Lull killer!

    *I GENTLY leveled the frets and crowned em.
    *Next was to replace the 'replaced' import Hipshot keys with USA ones.
    *Then the bridge... a lovely Black/Chrome Badass II. How awesome does that look!
    *Then I thought a Sadowsky Preamp would sound more lively than the East custom, I was right! OMG!!
    *Lastly was a tough decision but I choose a set of Nordstrand NJ4 70's wind pickups.
    *What a combo!! A rich, full, lively sound from vintage to modern and everything in between!

    I might sell her or trade, IDK. I haven't gigged out in over a year, not sure what the future holds but this is my fav jazz bass! (I've had quite a few, as most of us have.



    Before as I received it without the Aguilars, Babicz bridge or USA tuner keys...

    Dropped in the Nordys, installed the Badass II and removed the East pre...
