    It's the one on the right...

    Swamp ash body w/wild maple top, Birdseye/birdseye neck, black fret markers, Nordstrand humcancelling pickups, J-retro preamp. I replaced the pictured bridge (Badass IV) w/ a ABM quick release version.

    Plays great, looks great to me. Considering a refinish to Honeyburst, though...

    ^^^I keep hearing that referenced, but I must have missed the thread. Was their some confusion about Valenti basses and Sadowsky basses (hence the Sadowsky using Warmoth parts bit that I keep hearing)????? Enlighten me oh bass gods!

    EDIT: To Vanselus

    Sikly: naah, it's been a constant ongoing rumor that is absolutely NOT true. Doesn't have anything to do with Valenti, the rumor was there long before he made sweet basses.

    Do a search - the threads are entertaining.

    Since this picture the pickups have been swapped to Nordstrands, the old J-retro replaced with a new one (had two, sold the older one), and the bridge replaced with the ABM quick release bridge.

    Really would like to get a cherryburst or Honeyburst refin done on it... :hyper:

    They do make Tele bass bodies.

    Hey Nino, what kind of wood is that 3rd bass in you list of pictures? It looks like walnut or something -- very nice!

    I bought this neck & body off of eBay. The body was flamed maple & it was SUPER heavy. I ended up selling it before I posted it here.
