    Offering a closet queen 2008 Sadowsky NYC Custom 21-fret 4-string with P/J pickups.

    The custom build:
    Weight: 7 pounds, 7 ounces
    Chambered Ash Body
    Madagascar Rosewood fretboard (up-charge)
    Tigers Eye Quilted Top (up-charge)
    Vintage tinted nitro laquer neck (up-charge)
    Black Hardware (up-charge)
    P-J Pick Ups (up-charge)
    Sadowsky standard preamp
    1.5" Nut
    12" fingerboard radius
    Sadowsky fitted hard case

    Ordered today, this instrument would price out to $5,800. I purchased here on TB about a year ago and have only played it at church twice. When I got it, I noticed that the nitro lacquer on the neck was thinning from age and case storage. So, I had the Sadowsky shop re-spray the neck back to the original vintage tint, paperwork included.

    The condition of the instrument is excellent. Standard light swirls but no dents, dings, cracks. There is one scuff on the edge where you right arm sits while playing. I provided a picture, but the scuff is light and hard to photograph.

    This bass plays extremely well. The light weight and jazz width neck make for a fast player and the neck P pickup with the Sadowsky preamp has a nice bite when digging in, which can be dialed back with the VTC control. I find that the pickup blend control coupled with the P-J pickups has a an exceptionally useable range allowing for a wide variety of sounds. The tuning pegs are the smoothest to operate and make super accurate tuning of the instrument very easy.

    The woods are terrific, as well. I discovered that the Ash/Rosewood combination is the secret sauce in tone woods. The quilted top is gorgeous. The black hardware finishes off the look. Wearing new Sadowsky Blue Label Nickel, Regular strings.

    I am selling this to fund a 5-string NYC Sadowsky. Free personal delivery to Nashville. All others, please add $60 to help offset shipping. PayPal is great. Ready to ship in the custom fitted case.
