    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...
    Sadowsky Pre going in...
    Nice and clean...
    Stunningly Beautiful and now Tone and playability like never before! I love the feel of natural wood!
