The title says it all, if you were in the market for a Jazz bass style 5 strings high end modern instrument that will be your only go to jazz bass which would you choose. Money is no issue anyway they are both fairly close in price. Both would have ash body with maple fingerboard and both would have natural finish with black pickguard. I trust both are top notch quality and finishing. There is the matter of the pick ups Sadowsky have their own wound singles whereas the Fodera uses Seymour Duncans. And the preamps: Sadowsky's famous preamp and that signature sound, at the same time the very unique Pope/Fodera preamp. So which would you go for and why ?
