    Beautiful NYC Sadowsky Bass in great condition.


    #5249 | Vintage 5-String
    FINISH | '59 Burst
    BODY | Quilted Maple on Swamp Ash
    FINGERBOARD | Maple, 12" Radius, 1 7/8" Nut Width
    PICKGUARD | Tortoise
    HARDWARE | Chrome
    PICKUPS | Sadowsky Single Coil - (Upgrade)
    WEIGHT | 8.35 lbs. (3.79 kg)
    PREAMP | Sadowsky Preamp with Vintage Tone Control
    STRINGS | SBS45B • Blue (Stainless Steel 45-130T) | Fresh Set

    Comes with Sadowsky PortaBag in excellent condition & Tools/Strap Locks.

    The only marks I can find on this bass are a few swirls on the pickguard. It's in very good shape.
    Has all the growl and tone you expect from a NYC Sadowsky.

    I put in Sadowsky Single Coil pickups.

    $3,400 shipped to the lower 48 states, I'll consider international shipping at buyers expense.

    Here you go, I think a Mint guard would look great with the '59 burst.

    Sexiest bass on TB!! I'd trade my 60th Ann precision deluxe V in butterscotch with an Aguilar OBP3 & my Nathan East V for this!!! Anyway, free bump for my favorite bass on TB. Wow! Serious GAS now.

    Why the string spacing seems to be uneven?
    the G string is much closer to the D string than does the low B to the E string
    Improper setup of the bridge?

    I guess you're talking about the picture with the PG off. This is probably because the strings are loose. Take a look at the stock photo from the Sadowsky site above and see that everything is perfect.
    Good luck with the sale! Beautiful bass.
