I don't want this to become a Sadowsky bashing or anything like that, but I wonder if anyone else has run into the same issue that I had... I have owned 4 Sadowsky's over the past 13 years: (2) 4-String Jazz w/ Sadowsky Pickups (1) 4-String Jazz w/ EMG Pickups (1) 5-String w/ EMG Soapbars I absolutely loved the basses, but found that with each of them, the D and G string had a thinner sound and seemed to get lost in the mix compared to the other strings. (I'd tried different gauges of strings and different amps as well) Aside from that, they were perfect. There is just something that feels right playing a Sadowsky, but the music I was playing just called for something a little more agressive. I'm itching to get myself another Sadowsky, but I'm just a bit concerned with having the same issues with the D and G strings. I'm guessing that it may be because of the frequencies the EQ is set at to get that "Sadowsky Sound"...? I've got my eye on a nice 4-string P/J Sadowsky that I'm hoping may eliminate some of the thin-ness of the J/J configuration (?) Sorry for the legnth of this post. I appreciate any comments.
