This really sucks......... I've owned a LOT of Sadowsky basses. Hell, I started the Sadowsky Club here on TB!!!! I love Roger and Co. work. And all of their basses I've owned were pretty sweet. This one, and no B.S., this one is by far, the flat out best Sadowsky I've ever owned. And IS the best 5 I think I may have owned. Sadly, unexpected job loss last month has taken its toll harder than I expected. So this one along with some other stuff, has to go. Details: Chambered alder body. Black Pearl finish with matching headstock. (Crazy hard to photograph). 24 fret ebony fingerboard with no face dots (maple neck). Nordstrand flat top pickups- NJ5S split coil hum canceling. (no exposed pole pieces). Sadowsky pre with VTC. UNDER 8 POUNDS!!!!!! serial number 54XX. $3300 shipped Ships in first gen Sadowsky form fitted case. I will ONLY ship to be held at your local FedEx store. Con US preferred. ONLY trades for Sadowsky Will Lee and $1200 or other Metro + $$$$. Xotic XJ 4 or 5 and at least $1200 This one is simply amazing sounding and playing. Just a pure joy to play. Nothing but complements on the tone. If i can work thru this hole, I'm keeping this bass for as long as humanly possible.
