Sadowsky PJ5

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Biker4Him, Dec 5, 2006.

  1. Teal Green metallic PJ5 serial number 3917. This bass has been owned by a few peeps around here, and all have/do rave about this particular bass. There is something almost magical about it.

    So then why am I selling..?? I'm broke.. and I don't play as much lately. However; if it doesn't sell it won't break my heart.. and who knows.. I may decide to pull the ad if some of my other gear sells soon enough.

    There are a couple of tiny dings on the end of the headstock, they were there when I got the bass. Basically though, the bass is 97% flawless. It will come with the Sadowsky case, and THREE pickguards. Two mint guards one for each orientation of the "P" pups, and one tort guard.

    $3000.00 shipped in the 48 states. paypal add $50.00.

    You know, I swore up and down I'd never sell my Lull P5...

    ...that was before I saw this one.

    Sheesh...this and a Rob Allen listed on the same day. I may just cry.

    I love Sados, P/J set-ups and the color green :D

    What's the fretboard?

    I may risk divorce for this one! Wifey: :scowl:
  9. Yes, the strings are green, they are the DR coated strings.

    I do believe the fretboard is Brazilian Rosewood..

    Green is not my color but I like the reverse P set-up. I'm sure it will find a good home.

    Having spent some time with this bass in my greedy lil hands, I can attest to its greatness. Just massive low-mid thickness, and a thinner than normal Sadowsky Neck that is ultra-playable. That, and you couldn't find a better TB'er to deal with. I'm glad your sellin some stuff off, because your office was startin to look like Tom Bowlus' basement.

    Bump for a fantastic bass and for a quality seller. :cool:

    Henry, if I didn't already have a P/J 5, you know I'd be all over it. Someone make this bass a good home!

  15. Thanks for all the kinds words fella's. It humbles me. :crying:

    Of all the basses I own, I KNOW I will regret selling this one. It and my Skjold are the only two basses I've ever played that somehow make me a better player, it just fits me. I'm hoping some of my other stuff sells.. and this one can stay here for a while longer!! However; if it sells.. that's fine too. Someone else will get to play this fantastic bass, and I'll still have my Skjold.

    That Skjold is nothin to shake a stick at either. Remarkable bass. Keep in mind also, that I will be easing some of your financial woes this Friday :)
  18. Bass is staying home. Sold enough other stuff to keep it here. My wife even yelled at me when I told her I'd listed it for sale.

    Thanks guys!!

    Glad you could keep it. I've had my wife get on me when I was thinking about letting some of my favorites go.
