    2013 Sadowsky NYC vintage JJ 4 in Vintage Shoreline Gold with matching headstock. Vintage style, non-chambered alder body, Brazilian fingerboard with pearl blocks (no binding), 9" radius. 8.25 lbs. Hipshot Xtender D-tuner. I am the second owner of this bass, it was a custom order for another TB'er in late 2012. I purchased it in September 2013. Near mint condition, rarely played and only gigged once. Full specs below.

    The only marks on this bass are barely perceptible. There is a tiny nick on the top of the headstock; a 1mm slight depression in the back that won't photograph; and a small mar in the finish on the lower side of the headstock that is also difficult to photograph. No scratching at all on the bass or the pickguard. Barely any fret wear, if that. Neck is perfect and will take 2/32 action and play beautifully. Never in a smoking environment. Original clear vinyl protective sheets on the back and above the pickups.

    In October 2014 I returned the bass to the Sadowsky shop for two adjustments. The pots were originally wired V/V and I had them re-wired to their standard configuration of volume/blend. I had them remove the finish from the back of the neck, so the neck is now bare maple on the back, treated with Tru-oil by Roger's staff. All work was done in the Sadowsky shop by his staff.

    FINISH | Vintage Shoreline Gold
    BODY | Un-Chambered Alder
    NECK | Maple Thin Matte Nitro Finish
    FINGERBOARD | Brazilain Rosewood, 9" Radius, 1 1/2" Nut Width, Vintage Tint
    HEADSTOCK | Matching Vintage Shoreline gold
    PICKGUARD | Parchment
    HARDWARE | Chrome
    PICKUPS | Sadowsky Single Coil JJ
    WEIGHT | 8.25 lbs.
    PREAMP | Sadowsky Preamp with VTC

    Sadowsky Portabag and original Hipshot tuning machine included.

    I have many more photos available, PM with an email address if interested.

    This bass cost over $5,000 when ordered, and with current prices it would be over $6,000 to build.

    $3,700 + shipping. USA sales only.

    The ONLY trades + cash I would consider are Lakland USA basses, but a trade is unlikely. Please don't offer anything else.
