    Up for sale is my Sadowsky NYC Vintage 4-String. It's gorgeous!

    Without question, this bass is by far one of the most beautiful and best sounding instruments I have ever played.

    This baby was originally sold in August of 2014. The original paperwork is included.

    I had planned to keep several basses for this upcoming season, but things have changed. As much as I REALLY LOVE this bass, I am now forced to part with it. This baby needs to find a good home.

    It is absolutely gorgeous! The pictures just don’t do it justice.

    It never left my house. I only used it for very light practicing, so there may be a few marks in the pick guard and signs of very light wear, etc.. Otherwise, it’s just gorgeous. Plays like a dream.

    It sounds like, well… it sounds like only a Sadowsky can sound.

    You will love the unique finish. It’s a caramel burst over quilted maple. Has a very warm visual feel to it. The neck is maple with a Madegascar Rosewood fingerboard.

    Being a Vintage series, it has the slightly smaller body size. It’s very comfortable to play and it’s light – weighing in at around 8 lbs.

    Serial number is 6625. Bass originally sold for $4,800.

    It has the very convenient drop D tuner.

    It comes with the (essentially) brand new hard shell case that came with the bass originally.

    Also included is the following:

    - Brand new Sadowsky Guitar Polish

    - Brand new Sadowsky Micro Fiber Polishing Cloth

    - 1/16” Bridge Wrench

    - Key for Hard Shell Case

    - Original Paperwork

    Wow. What a beautiful top!

    I am almost glad that it isn't a 5er as that bass is EXACTLY what I wil be spec-ing for my next bass.
