  6. are those baritone guitars? guitars? or basses???
     
  7. Here's my Sadowsky J bass. It looks cherrburst but it's really carmelburst; the red is only in the photo. Note the figured birdeye maple board.

    Major Metal,

    It should be ready in about 4 months. I asked Roger for:
    • tigers eye finish on quilt maple
    • alder body
    • scraped faux binding
    • no fingerboard dots on a morado board
    • gold hardware
    • matching tigers eye stain on headstock....I hope
     
  8. FYI:

    1. Quilt greenmaple on alder w/ morado HSH guitar
    2. Quilt cherrburst maple on ash with maple board strat (sold)
    3. Wild finish alder w/ maple board strat
    4. Quilt car'burst maple on ash w/ maple board jazz bass 4
    5. Flame spalt maple on alder w/ Braz RW PJ4 bass
    6. Above

    Real nice, saw a guy have one at the blue note for a Patituchi master class, he used to work for Sadowsky and made some mods, but it was stunning, too bad I'm barely scrapping cash in and can't justify a purchase.

    And whats with that silly guitar at the top of the page?! :confused: :smug:
    Grats on another Sadowsky! Share the wealth will ya! ;)
     
  11. It's not a guitar. It's a 6 string bass tuned up one octave. ;)

    I do. It's called alimony. :bag:

    Gorgeous finish, man.

    I actually thought about requesting that kind of finish on my P/J. Eventually settled on natural, but man, that's stunning.
