S O L D !!!!! I really don't want to do this. But here it is. A Sadowsky MV5 in my personal favorite '59 burst with mint pickguard. A great bass... always sits well in the mix, feels comfortable on your shoulder, and plays like a dream. My circumstances have changed, and while I am still playing bass.. I am playing less of it. So I just don't need this bad boy anymore. It's in great shape.. there is one little scuff area about the size of a dime on the back of the bass. I tried as hard as I could to get it to show up in a picture.. I think you'll be able to see it. Other than that.. the bass is in great shape. Comes with the Sadowsky base. What more can you say about these great basses.. ?? $1800.00 shipped inside the 48 states. click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pics. Might consider a trade for another Sadowsky..but I really should free up some money!
