    If my memory serves me correct, I remember not long ago people at Sadowsky Club thread mentioned they want a NYC Building pictures thread as well! Ok, I'm happy to start as the first one.

    My Sadowsky NYC Standard 5.
    DSC_5172.

    Finish | 59' Burst
    Body | Spalted Maple Top on Swamp Ash Body
    Neck | Maple Neck, Vintage Tint
    Fingerboard | Brazilian Rosewood, 12" Radius, 1 3/4 Nut Width, Vintage Tint finish
    Pickguard | Clear Plexi with black screws
    Hardware | Black
    Pickups | Sadowsky Humcancelling Pickup
    Preamp | Sadowsky Preamp with Vintage Tone Control
    String | SBN40B / Blue (Nickel 40-125T)
    Case | Sadowsky Porta Bag


    Few order notes I made:
    - Dunlop recessed strap lock instead standard dual strap lock
    - Darker Brazilian board
    - Preamp on/off toggle switch instead of push/pull knob.
    - Since I'm now ordering a Standard 5, but I requested to have Vintage 5 knobs layout with no control plate, I prefer the closer knobs layout better

    Enjoy! :hyper:

    I'm sorry to tell you that painting that top, even if it is only on the sides, is a crime. It even has the elegant and classy accent line!!!

    reconsider it boy ;)

    I'm with Fran on this 1000%.

    I'd also reconsider drilling holes for that pickguard too... that top is just WAY too beautiful to cover up with ANYTHING.

    I like black basses. My Sadowsky is black. I think you should paint yours black, too.

    The moral of the story: get what YOU want, not what WE want!

    :D

    P.S. Love your idea!
