    Just curious as to how many Sadowsky owners out there have multiple Sadowsky basses.

    I personally have none, but I am extremely jealous of all you.

    :spit: GRRRRRR!!!! :spit:

    (Just kidding) :D

    Work is slow and I am bored....

    Thanks!!!

  2. My answer is complex if given liberty:

    2 Sadowsky guitars
    2 Sadowsky basses (2nd arriving next week)

    I had a 3rd Sadowsky guitar but sold it.
     
  3. I have two with one in the works.

    Vintage 5 string fretted with single coils

    24 "fret" fretless

    24 fret fretted due in 6 months.

    I've got two. Both four string, maple neck, ash body, quilt top. My first (trans blue) was bought new from Roger at the beginning of 2002, and my second (cherry sunburst) is a used 1997 model I picked up 3 months ago. Both have the humbuckers, which I really like.

    If I bought another (which is a distinct possibility), it would definately be to get a rosewood board. I'm not sure what style I'd get (vintage or standard), although I really like the match of a rosewood board with a natural quilt maple top.

    I bought one, but haven't received it yet. I guess that counts. I purchased a used Tokyo RJ5. Can you believe it? A used one available already. Wooo. I can't wait to receive it, it should be here Tuesday.

    I've owned 2 Sadowsky Standard 4 strings and I didn't like the tone at all in them, the first had flamed maple top and a morado fretboard and the other had quilted maple top and maple fingerboard. I've tried a 5 string modern a few times and I loved the tone of them basses. :D :bassist:

    y duz that mean u can hav 1 as an option?
     
  12. Just the one I’m afraid.
    Would love another but pretty unlikely to find a s/h one here in Thailand.
    A new one would cost me 100 per cent import duty. Was lucky to get my one, (and my Anni Ray) through customs undetected.

    I have one and it is still my favorite bass. I have a few other basses and when I play the Sadowsky I am reminded just how great this bass really is.

    I've been longing for a PJ5 in Olympic White with a rosewood board (morado) and one day will have one.

    I'd probably trade two or three of my basses for Jeff Rader's Spalt top Sadowsky.

  16. I know what you mean. My Fodera and Zon sounds and plays great, but just doesn't work for everything I do as well as my Sadowskys. It is really a player's bass.

    Thanks for the compliment on the spalted Sadowsky - Roger really outdid himself on that one. Wonder how he'll do with that piece of Buckeye Burl?? ;)

    You did it, huh???? Way cool!

    I hope that the Sadowsky plays and sounds as good to you as it does to me. If not I know a place that would give that bass a great home.;)

    Yeah, don't tell anybody. If I like it, I've got two basses to sell, or at least one. If I don't, I will send you PM.;)
