I've had my new Sadowsky PJ/4 for about 5 weeks now and am very happy with the instrument. It's taking some getting used to as there are several specific things on this bass I've not had experience with before. First and foremost is the Nitrocelluous Lacquer finish on the neck. All my other basses have been tounge oil finishes which suit me very well. Ever since I've had the new PJ my hand will start to stick to the neck after playing short while. I've cleaned throughly and polished it and it still happens. I have very dry skin and rarely sweat on my hands and I always wash my hands before playing. The string are all clean etc. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Second, the bridge. It's pretty slick that you can just push the ball end of the string into the bridge from the saddle side without running the whole string through. I've had problems when it comes to tightening up though. I'm busy with both hands at the headstock guiding the string and winding. Trying to keep tension on the string while winding is difficult and sometimes the ball pops out of the seated spot and then " Boink!" I found this out the hard way the first time as a D string was not seated and popped out while I was warming up. Does anyone have a method to this? I tried growing a third arm but it's taking too long... Third. Mentioned this on another thread. The pickup sweep knob works "counter intuitivley." When I turn the knob counter clockwise the neck (pj in this case) becomes dominant. When turned clockwise the bridge Jazz pup become the dominant. As stated before, no big deal, I'm already used to it, but it's different. Fourth. Sadowsky's are naturally very 'bright' sounding instruments. I am starting to equate this more to clarity rather than actually bright. Do you find this to be evedent with your Sad. In which case, the ash/maple combo would be even brighter. I have the alder-chambered/morado. Thanks for any feedback.
