    Thanks Guys

    I am a rank amatuer but I have played and own some very nice basses, I have to say this bass is BEEYOOTIFUL. :D

    I telephoned Roger to thank him and I explained that the quality of the bass is immediately apparent just looking at it as you open the case.

    I have a Lakland 55-94 Deluxe also but the clarity and sustain of this Sadowsky is excellent in comparison, although maybe the Laks' setup needs some attention.(Don't hate me Munji, I have an Eden Highwayman and 410XST ;) )

    By the way Nino check out jaydeeguitars.com

    They're both VERY nice basses. I liked Flankers sooo much I almost cancelled my Standard 4 to buy it but I really want another 4 string so the Standard 4 should be ready in a month or so. :)

    Ari, All I can say is WOW!!!!! I'n not particularly fond of Fretless basses, but I couldn't resist playing it. The spalt is AWESOME & I'm glad I got to play youre because I didn't get a chance to play Jeff Raders Spalt fretless.

    Enjoy them!!!!

    Ahhh, I was wondering who would end up with this work of art... I kept drooling over it every time I visited Sadowsky's website. I think it has to be the best looking Sadowsky I've seen yet. ENJOY!

    *seething with jealously* :p

    So NINO , did you take the 'virginity' of the bass?:D :D

    Anyway that's a real beauty, I think she's the most beautiful Sad I've seen. Unfortunately I play 4,otherwise it will be gone the first day it appeared.

    By the way I am expecting my 'conservative' Sadowsky, a P/J 4 with sunburst, tortoise and Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, 20 frets and full Jazzbody.
