Sadowsky Experts/Fanatics (!) - Can you tell me the string spacing etc on an NYC 5er?

    Hi all

    In the Bass Gallery, Camden, London a few months ago I played the most amazing green Sadowsky NYC 5er. It had a black neck pickup cover on it, in case anyone knows its history/whereabouts.

    I was really blown away by how comfortable the neck and string spacing was. Can anyone tell me these dimensions? It was far nicer than my Warwick Streamer V ( which was about 20mm I think!).


    Thanks in advance!


    Regards,


    Mike

    Obviously, this was the first port of call I visited.


    I can't find the string-spacing on there for the 5 string NYCs. If you could direct me to the relevent text, Sean, I'd appreciate it.

    Don't forget that you can order NYC 5 string Sadowskys with different string spacing, so you need to know the serial number on that particular bass and email them.
