    This Sadowsky five-string bass is literally like new. No scratches, marks or fret wear. It was never used on a gig. The beautiful transparent white finish shows off the ash body and the classic Sadowsky electronics sound great active or passive. It balances perfectly on a strap and weighs 8.5 lbs. Included is the original Sadowsky gig bag. You can see the original price here. Free shipping for continental US only. PayPal okay. No trades or international shipping.

    • Sleek undersized body shape with a full two octave note range and deeper cutaways
    • Solid swamp ash body
    • Thicker headstock and graphite strips dramatically reduce dead spots and create a more even response on every note
    • Maple fingerboard
    • 1 7/8” nut width
    • 24 18% nickel/silver frets .094″ wide x .051″ high, maximum hardness
    • Hipshot Ultralight tuners
    • Sadowsky Soapbar pickups in Modern locations
    • Classic Sadowsky Treble and Bass boost pre-amp 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
    • 19mm bridge spacing

    I’ve got one just like this with the translucent white finish, except it has a rosewood fingerboard. It really is a beautiful and subtle finish. The Sadowsky modern is one of the best basses you can own. GLWTS!

    Great bass. I had one before I went with a different brand with similar soapbar pickup placement. I played it for a show the day I got it. I think mine was a sunburst finish. I like this finish better. Tempting to get as a backup/alternate sounding 5 string.

    According to the Sadowsky website it was made in 2015, but I just purchased it recently from the inventory of a music store that closed.

    A few people have asked about the scale length. It's 34".
