    Before you read on... I am located in Sydney, Australia. I am resorting to post it here, as the Australian bass market is tiny and most people here are not really interested in high-end basses. If you are interested in purchases, I can ship at the buyer's expense. Or if you want a trade deal, PM me so we can discuss some options (I have some good options which works very well). Thanks for reading, God bless.

    For trade is my Sadowsky NYC Will Lee 5. I am putting this up for trade to explore other options, as I have other Jazz Basses and I want to try something different.

    This bass, it needs no words. It is an absolute beast of a bass which oozes quality. Roger Sadowsky has added and/or modified several important facets to the J-Bass design in order to facilitate Will Lee's requests (e.g. narrower neck and outboard parametric midrange boost box to grant access to more mid-range punch to cut through when playing live).

    This bass exhibits top notch construction and craftsmanship like all other Sadowsky basses. Provides super-smooth playability and a huge array of tonal possibilities while maintaining that trademark Sadowsky tone. Thanks to the mid boost circuit, this bass can cut through the heaviest of mixes like hot knife through butter. Cosmetics are wonderful too with the top quality Rosewood top which really adds to its boutique-ness.

    » Mahogany Body (Chambered)
    » Rosewood Top Finish
    » Sadowsky Single Coil Pickups
    » African Ebony Fingerboard, 22 Frets
    » Sadowsky Preamp with Will Lee Mid Boost Circuit (Controls bandwidth & frequency)
    » Nut Width: 1.75"
    » Weight: 3.6kg
    » Serial #6895, January 2015

    Included with the bass is the Sadowsky original hard case in mint condition plus all the bits and pieces that came with the bass originally, including the specification letter.

    As mentioned for sales, I can ship worldwide at the user’s expense.

    As for trades, I would be especially happy to trade for a nice MTD 534/535 model, but also open to hear other offers of similar value.
