Sadowsky battery question.....

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by simongpaez, May 3, 2005.

  1. Does anybody knows when did Sadowsky started putting the battery cavity inside the bass? If I see a Sadowsky with the battery cavity in the back is it possible to know the year? also when did Sadowsky started using same knobs for the VTC basses? I have notice some "older" models with diifferent Knob on the Bass/Treble knob.

    The batteries have always been inside except for some basses made around the year 2000. I owned 2 with the battery boxes. Both failed. Roger said to me that he couldnt handle all the boxes failing so he put the battery back inside and wont use the boxes anymore. As far as the vtc and the knobs, I'm clueless

    No big deal. Roger sent me new boxes and I installed them
