    Up for sale only (no trades )...my 2018 Sadowsky NYC 5-21...in excellent condition! 42CFAF8D-5576-4496-9854-58863812AEC0.jpeg
    Beautiful transparent vintage-white (not sure if it’s one piece, but sure sounds like it, to my ears) ash body, maple neck/fb, and Vintage Pearl pickguard, 19mm bridge, 1-7/8” nut. Has upgraded abalone face dots... DAFEAA50-FFF2-4D8A-8C68-71FC56DEC22D.jpeg
    Will come with an additional pickguard that came with my build. Never installed, because the Vintage Pearl is just a stellar perfect match! 5AC60D37-A412-4682-8D7A-B6657B352CB0.jpeg
    Iirc, from two years ago...8.5 lbs on FedEx scale. Bass has a terrific slightly “beefier/muscle” sounding tone, compared to heavily chambered models.

    The back of the maple neck (and top end of headstock) has a very slight “shadow” discoloration, where the neck/headstock were in contact with the (teardrop hardshell case) black velvet storage pocket top (and case lid)... When I realized this was happening from the velvet in the hardshell case, I moved it to a new/never gigged Portabag. Note: This has NO impact to the nitro finish! The nitro finish (and feel) on the back of the neck is perfect, like new. Staining is really minimal, and hard to photograph., but always strive for complete disclosure... 5DE06A55-F0BF-4DFE-9167-00EE285DA22A.jpeg F44AB951-AF36-4238-A6C0-05C275408944.jpeg
    Other than the above mentioned very slight neck/headstock staining, I can’t find any dings/marks. I don’t slap, so pg looks like new. It’s a flat gorgeous looking/sounding NYC bass! The neck is straight, and has been s-u-p-e-r stable...as you can see, no hairline paint cracks at the nice/tight neck joint... 9318223F-FE22-4B7A-BA12-C4C0B2E8DAE6.jpeg 8A48FB16-DCA5-491B-85B4-97DA0D661473.jpeg 38CC25DF-BE12-403C-A5DF-0C98EE259093.jpeg
    I just installed a fresh set of Sadowsky Blue SS 45’s for this listing...will ship in a new/unused Sadowsky Portabag.

    I’m only selling because I recently received my Sadowsky UV J build...just too many basses!

    $3200 shipped CONUS, PayPal only. E41BEEE9-970A-44EE-B211-4B98B7ADF81E.jpeg 7B906FAF-26A4-450F-A009-DBECDC13F20C.jpeg CA03DD7F-B5AE-4873-90ED-854A0A6E6A65.jpeg 7179A581-2C8E-4E05-BAE5-D0C6380A2188.jpeg 317365DF-26D0-4B20-A6E2-D2E6325DB9CC.jpeg
