    Greetings, bass shoppers. This is perhaps the best bass I have ever played. Regrettably, with two kids in college, I can't hold on to a bass this nice in good conscience. As you all know, Sadowsky P-Basses are not that common, and I really wanted to take one for a spin. This instrument did not disappoint. It still sounds as amazingly smooth as any other Sadowsky (and I've had several,) but you can also get that P-Bass bark and growl. It's a revelation, really... but I've got a few other nice P-basses that fill that need. This baby is super-clean... I can't find a mark of any consequence on it.

    Here are the specs:

    Sadowsky NYC Vintage P/J

    FINISH | Candy Apple Blue

    BODY | Alder

    NECK | Maple with Thin Matte Nitro Finish

    FINGERBOARD | Morado Rosewood, 12" Radius, 1 1/2" Nut Width, Vintage Tint

    PICKGUARD | Black/White/Black

    HARDWARE | Black

    PICKUPS | Sadowsky P/J

    WEIGHT | 8.06 lbs.

    PREAMP | Sadowsky Preamp with Vintage Tone Control

    It's a 2013 build. She's got TI rounds on her now and a spare set of used unknown rounds in the gig bag pocket, along with the truss rod tool (the lever moves the truss rod easily in both directions) and the Allen wrench to adjust the bridge saddles. It will ship in a wonderful Sadowsky-branded Portabag along with a Sadowsky-branded strap with straplocks that match the strap buttons installed.

    $4000 shipped CONUS. PayPal OK. $3800 cash in person in NW CT or other nearby location. I'm occasionally in NYC, and would travel a bit to avoid shipping.

    Pix below. For some of the pictures my flash went off, so the color is a bit inconsistent. I'm including the original Sadowsky new bass photo, which probably has the best representation of the beautiful shade of blue that the bass sports.
