Got this a few weeks ago from the Bass Emporium; a really nice bass, but I'm finding myself more at home on my Glaub. It's not the ticket for me, but plays and sounds great. Don't know how it compares to other Sadowskys, it's the only one I've laid hands on. You can see it (and hear it!) on Ed Friedlands web site; it is that bass, sold by the Emporium for him, where I understand he teaches. A few very light scratchs where it looks like it rubbed on a stand being set down, right under where your right arms rests on the bass; you gotta look close, and that's all I see. Comes with the Ultra-Lite case, those are nice units. Not interested in trades, I don't believe, though a US Bob Glaub PJ might get the juices flowing. I'm a new poster here, but been reading and gleaning what I can from TB and it's widely varied membership for a few months now. I do have excellent feedback on Ebay under "fryer456". I'm asking $1995 plus shipping. Sorry, no Paypal at this time. Thanks!
