    This is a very recent 2016 build. I’m the original owner from new and not a mark to be found anywhere, it looks and plays factory fresh. Upgraded her with a new White Pearloid pick guard from Sadowsky and restrung with a fresh set of Sadowsky Nickles. Just needing to clear out a few luxury instruments that aren't in regular use. BTW - take a look at that weight, that’s NYC shop territory! This one is definitely going to make someone really happy!


    SPECIFICATIONS:
    ◦ Sherwood Green Metallic finish over Solid Ash body
    ◦ (Graphite reinforced) 12" Radius Maple Neck with thin matte Nitro finish (vintage tint)
    ◦ 21-Fret Maple fingerboard
    ◦ 1 7/8” width at nut
    ◦ 19mm bridge spacing
    ◦ White Pearloid pickguard (OE White Guard w/plastic in tact incl.)
    ◦ Hipshot Ultralight tuners
    ◦ Sadowsky Humcancelling PJ pickups
    ◦ Classic Sadowsky Preamp - Treble and Bass boost with true bypass switch
    ◦ Controls: master vol, pickup blend, treble roll-off (VTC) with pre-amp bypass, bass boost, treble boost
    ◦ Sadowsky bridge with quick release
    ◦ Sadowsky Soft Case (not Portabag)
    ◦ Original documents and tools
    ◦ Weight: 8.6 lbs


    New price as of 5/1/16 is $3300 + $50 pick guard + $50 SHP = $3400 and a wait of several months. Instant gratification at $2800 $2450 Shipped/Insured within the lower 48. No trades, thank you. Willing to meet for a local deal. Paypal ok

    Beautiful!

    If you buy this bass try a set of TI flats on it. I've always hated flats until I played a Sadowsky Metro P/J 5 with TI's. I'm telling you it is magical.

    Although I haven't tried them together... I like TI's and I love this bass - makes complete sense to me!

  5. That sure is a beauty! Is it just me, or is that G string wound the wrong way around the post? Wish I could pull the trigger on this.

    Different strokes. IMO, Sherwood Green is one of the finest colors ever!
