    I decided to put this one up for sale.. It's a Vintage PJ-5 now with a matching headstock.. It's in excellent shape and plays like butter.. The headstock was done by Pat Wilkens and he refinished the back of the neck with a nice light satin finish.. It will ship in a Sadowsky soft hardshell case via Fedex.. Asking $3300.00 shipped in the U.S. only...
    No trades please...

    Heres 2 close up shots.. I checked over the bass and cannot find any dents, nicks, dings or scratches.. Maybe some very fine light surface scratches that are typical in a used bass.. Hardly any fret wear and the only mod is the blend control is wired in the normal mode...

    Can you elaborate on what this means? What is normal mode? Does it mean you cannot pan between front and back pick-ups?

    Sadowskys come with the blend control reversed meaning counter clockwise for the neck pickup.. Normal is clockwise for the neck pickup and counter for the bridge...

    My old bass. This one absolutely kills. If you are looking for a Sadowsky PJ, jump on this. I've had three of them and you won't find better.

    "Normal is clockwise for the neck pickup and counter for the bridge" - a pet peeve of mine on most basses. It makes so much more sense to me to turn the knob toward the pickup you want to emphasize. GLWTS
  11. Nice. Do you happen to know if the body is chambered? 7.95 pounds seems very light for a 5 string jazz (which is not a bad thing)

    I agree. Makes way more sense to me that way, too.

    I believe that Sadowsky refers to this as "Reverse Pan". That is to say, once it's been changed from factory settings, it is a "Reverse Pan".

    Sure wish this was a JJ instead of PJ bump. Good luck. Perfect weight.

    Killer deal here folks! If I could swing it, this very light weight, great playing/looking bass would be gone......
    7.95 lbs?

    I can't believe this one is still available. This was my old bass and I sold two other NYC PJ5's to buy it. The others were no slouches but this one was the best of the lot. It's a really good bass.

  20. Was this a Freudian slip by the way, or is my mind just in the gutter? LOL! :oops:

    Bump for a gorgeous bass BTW!
