    Price:
    4100.
    Strings:
    5
    Location:
    Quebec
    It plays and sounds every bit as good as it looks.....like a Sad should.....but I would now rather not have this much $$ tied up in this bass, no matter how marvelous it is in all respects. It comes with the build certificate and Sad case. Near mint with some swirls in the clear coat but nothing of any significance. Bass is now in Montreal but with some notice I can ship from within the US if desired. 5200 CDN + shipping for a deal north of the border. The US price is shipped CONUS. As possible partial trades I will consider the following if at least 2000 (US equivalent) comes my way:

    5 string basses under 8.5 lbs with 34" scale and 19mm spacing, or a 4 string fretless (lined or with every position marked on the side of the neck). Genzler or Genz cabs under 40 lbs, an Audiokinesis Hathor 112 cab, Mesa Subway cab, tiny combo (under 30 lbs).

    I usually don't care for spalted maple, but that bass is just flat out gorgeous. Wow.

    ...I hear you...IMHO it falls into the category of aesthetic bass masterpiece...and it has the feel, sound and playability to match...like a Sadowsky should :)

    I never dug spalted maple either until I saw Roger's under a '59 burst. Beautiful!
