    What's a non standard feature in this beautiful Sadowsky bass?

    ...And NO, if you guess it you don't win the bass :D
     
  2. Besides the PU cover? ;)

    I would say the chrome knobs are pretty unusual for a Sadowsky

    Beauty!

    Checked the website and 3 knobs looks standard on a P, so now you've got me stumped!

    I'm thinking pickup cover, too, or maybe the finish.
     
  9. Seems like a 'standard' NYC Ultra Vintage... meant to cop the passive 60's thing, and be closer to a 'stock' Fender of that era.

    I still think Roger needs to come up with a different name than Ultra Vintage for the Metro UV, since that's a TOTALLY different thing... a little confusing.

    I agree; that is the only out-of-ordinary thing that I see. :confused:

    This is a case of photographing a bass for our website before it was completely finished.

    We have a winner!!!:bassist:

    I spent a couple of minutes trying to figure out what was looking weird in that bass and since I'm in a good mood today I thought that some talkbassers could waste their time too :D

    Come on Roger, tell us the truth. You were going to ship that bass without the string retainer. Mistakes are part of the human nature :D

    if I didn't have another Sadowsky on order I'd buy this bass right now...even without the string tree :D :D :D

    heck, maybe the owner wanted it that way... remember that badass bridge on that one Jazz-4?

    I understand that the basses in the website are for sale, and not custom orders, with maybe the exception of the "featured instrument of the month". Anyway, I'd take it without the string tree.

    Rounded edge on the fingerboard, as opposed to Roger's usual straight edge?
