    I need cash for a vehicle transaction and I'm digging deeper into the basses I'd want to keep. If another bass sells this one is off the table, but here is your chance.

    Here is excerpts from a previous/respected TB'r owner:

    This bass is a wonderful tone clone and works in a great variety of applications. It is FAR more versatile than my SC
    JJ. If the SC JJ is a Ferrari, this is more of an ultra-high performance ultility vehicle. If I could have only one bass,
    this might be the one to have.
    The specs:
    Ash body with quilt maple top in Cherryburst
    Maple neck
    Total weight: 8.6 pounds
    Sadowsky preamp with VTC
    Further this bass has been universally routed so that if you want to try the traditional P bass pickup placement, it can
    be changed. Although, I HIGHLY recommend the reverse. That placement makes for a KILLER punchy B string and
    very focused low end respondence. A Tort PG in the standard config is included.
    There a TINY blip on the bottom of the bass about an inch from the jack plate. It does not break the top coat and
    measures roughly 2-3 mm. It is less than 1 mm in width and barely catches your fingernail if you scrape across. I
    could not capture it with a photo. Otherwise, the bass is in perfect cosmetic order.
    There is one variance from these photos. The bass is now equipped with the Nordstrand-made Sadowsky pickups,
    making it up to the current specs. The Nordstrands added a slightly stronger mid-presence and a bit more aggressive
    sound. To my ears, the change made an amazing bass even more amazing. Original PUs are not included.
    I am not the original owner. I am unsure if the bass is chambered although I do not believe that it is.

    The first $3,100 from a U.S buyer gets it shipped to their door including the Sadowsky
    ultralight HSC.
    If you want a beautiful Sadowsky without waiting 10 months and paying 40-50 percent more, buy this. You won't
    regret it. This one could be sold as "new" off of the Sadowsky shop floor. It's that clean.

    And he's right on.........

    $3100 Shipped in the Conus (echeck, money order, bank transfer preferred)
