    Hi!

    It's the switch that lets you turn off the active preamp. It's on all Sad's

  6. That was a one off model. Don't get your hopes up for a regular offering of a 24f JJ model.

    A 4 string version of the Modern 5 24f soapbar beast might be happening though.

    Their are a few threads on this bass. It's not new, it was shipped to hime about 2 months ago or so. It played & sounded wonderful & I'd buy one if he offered them.

    The mini switch is on all non-vintage style instruments. Vintage style instruments have a push/pull that turns the pre-amp on/off.

    Bit off topic....but.."not meant for slap".....riiiight....I could slap on that easily. I could slap on a 28 fret, so long as the pickups aren't in the way, and I could slap on a 36 fret if I really wanted to. I sometimes end up slap-popping way up right beside my middle pickup, which is almost in the bridge position. There's plenty of space there on that bass IMO.

    Anyway, it looks faaaaantabulous anyway! I'd love sumthin like that....and I'll be seeing it when I see them at ozzfest...\m/ :D \m/

    It looks a lot like like this one.

  11. No way dude. The bottom of that bass is too rounded, not to mention that one has a humbucker. Control layout is different.

    But they both have black body and maple fretboards :D
     
  12. Heh, the Lakland looks like a deformed blob. Of course, there's just something about deformed blobs:eek: :D

    *drools over lakland*

    the Sadowsky and the lakland (again) are only simmilar by the colour and fretboard.
