Well, some good fortune has smiled on me and it looks like I'm going to be coming into some unexpected loot... I've been dreaming about one of Roger's ultra-vintage basses for some time and after recently getting a used 4, I am completely hooked! Add me to the list of those who believe the extra $$ is worth it....I can do things I've never done on my other basses and it just feels soooo right! I'm thinking shoreline gold or sherwood green...love those colors... Has anyone out there played or heard one of these basses! I'd love to hear your thoughts though, whether you've played one or not...thanks! Note: Will soon change my tagline to "Incurable Sadowsky addict".
