    Can you believe it guys? Saw it online. I drove to the shop hoping it wouldnt play good so I could take my cash and put it back in my pocket. Well, I was wrong. It played amazing. Sounds amazing. Looks amazing. It is amazing and light as they come. It looks so darn good next to my other Sadowsky's, too

    I will be seeking therapy early next week!!! LOL

    Funny, I jsut saw that one on the site and thought OMG that's the hottest one I've seen in a while. I even saved the pic on my computer. Good call Rob....do you live like next door to Roger's shop or something? 12 Jay street? No?

    Get ahold of yourself, man!
    Leave something for the others, too :D

    Anyway, what's so hot in it? Yeah, you'll jump at me saying it's a Sadowsky, how dare I question it, but I still see nothing special about it. :eyebrow:
  7. That bass is hot! You did the right thing, no therapy needed.
  8. I'm afraid to ask - how much (approximately) is that one going to set you back?

    Nice! Love the color. I would not have been able to pass it up either.

    Very nice!

    How do you find the sound differs with the PJ configuration to a JJ pickup configuration?

    Hey fellow upstater! Where is this shop you went to? I would love to give a sadowsky a try, but have yet to see one in a shop in upstate NY. Did you drive down to brooklyn to see it?

    Very cool man, if it had a maple board I think I'd be in love.

    Thanx all. I drove to Brooklyn to get it. Not too bad a drive, certainly worth it to me. I get treated like a star by the staff, they are great. Cool thing about the visit the other day was that Will Lee was there when I arrived. Got to hang with him a bit. Great guy to talk with. Very witty

    The M didnt work out, Major. No booty to the tone

    The PJ configuration really sounds awesome. Great for me because I need to have a P bass tone for a bunch of songs we cover. Really thumpy tone with a different type of growl to it you cant get from a straight jazz. I had one a while back and I'm glad I got this one. The braz rosewood board is beautiful, too. I love the color! Been thinking about Sonic blue for quite a while. Couldnt pass it up
  17. Where does Roger get Brazilian rosewood from, I thought it was on the endangered list?
