  1. How long does it take for Sadowsky to build a bass?

    We normally quote 6 months delivery on orders. If we have a completed body available, we might quote 4 months and if we have a sprayed body we might quote 3 months.

    We also have instruments in stock for immediate sale.

    do what i do and just stagger your orders... ;)

    should take about 6 months to garner the funds. :p
     
  6. As soon as I can finance a Sadowsky I WILL order one. I just can´t choose between the Standard or the Vintage. The other big problem is the color. I think it will be a solid color, or a sunburst.
    I have a Marcus Miller Sig. and Peavey Cirrus 5, but none of them is really what I want. I´ve tried a fiver now and realised that I don´t need more than four strings. And the Miller-bass feels cheap and badly assembled. So Roger you have one more customer, as soon he get´s the money. By the way, Thanks for the answer. This seems to be the beginning of a beatiful friendship!!!!:D

    i believe in sweden it aint that bad with taxes and toll, they just charge a specific amount, around 150usd. however in denmark first they add 25% of the price, and then if you havn't got a import licence another 40-60% depending of the value of the product. that's just insane.
     
  9. I haven´t been thinking about that, but that won´t stop me. But first i must sell my other basses. It seems to be a good moment to buy a bass from USA now when the dollar is low.

    it is, you should perhaps try to check out the shipping prices and tax+duties, sometimes, here atleast it would be cheaper to fly there by plane and pick it up, then you'll also get to try it before you buy it.
     
  11. Thanks for the advice. But i don´t think i´m going to fly over the atlantic this year.

    Make sure you keep checking his website. I also had a "plan" for ordering one at a later date, when a model with the exact specifications I was looking for magically appeared in stock. I pulled the trigger about a year before I was "ready," but it was definitely the right move. They go fast (even this 10-post thread already has 260+ views)--be ready to pounce. :cool:

  14. That would be cool! It´s just a matter of money. I´m only 18 years old so I have to sell my other basses and work hard this summer. By the way I only need one bass. If I buy one I hope I don´t get the Sadowsky GAS one more time.

  18. Thats a nice bass. But I want a four. I´m not really intrested in the Tokyo series. I´m sure they are great basses, but I want the REAL thing.

    I´m just about to sell my Cirrus now. It seems like I might get enogh money this year if I get what I want for my basses. I someone near the city of Gothenburg is intrested in a 5 string Cirrus. send me a pm.
     
  19. Man,if that is correct fly to NYC and pick it up yourself. I'm gonna visit someday, of course Indiana is much closer....:D Good luck to you.
