    Not a Squire but currently I would take a Fender over a Sadowsky for a few reasons.

    1. I can afford a Fender
    2. I can play a Fender without worrying about messing it up
    3. I am happy with the Fender sound, not sure if I would like the "Fender on steriods" sound
    4. I could afford to mod a Fender extensively if I found the sound lacking.

    Just me, though. I think 3500 for an "improvement" on a classic design is way more than what I would ever spend, no matter how great it sounds or how much I liked it. :D .

    The Squire would be better.

    You can tell the uninformed that it's a special custom Fender only available to pros. The uninformed will have never heard of a Sadowsky and they will think it's something you bought at Sears. :scowl:

    Go for the Squire because you will be much cooler. ;)

    They are both too refined.

    Basses made to those precise and exacting standards are making Bassist into a bunch of pampered whiny-pants. :bawl: :bawl:

    You should commision a Wish bass and ask him to skip the extensive sanding and finishing he does, just leave it the way the hand saw made it. Nothing brings out the creativity in a musician than the possibility of mind numbing pain from slivers.
     
  20. Get the Squire and have Roger do the setup. ;)
