    Okay, everyone is tired of hearing my "oh my god I wish I could drop my frikken Wife so I can afford a new Sadowsky" posts, so here it is:

    Anyone can build me a Sadowsky M5-24 replica (no fancy stuff like exotic tops etc.) for $1,600 or under gets my check. It's right here, I'm waiving it in the air.....begging to give it away.........I'll even trade you my beautiful Stuart Spector American made NS-JH5CM #152 + cash if thats better........

    I want a standard Swamp ash body, no finish, you dont even hafta put PU's or a preamp in it, just want that shape, neck and a SUPER-QUALITY FRETJOB. Slather whatever name you like all over the damn headstock, i couldnt care less, if you do it right I'm happy to advertize for you........

    don't post here, just send me a message ( if Nino or Roger sees this I'm a dead man..sorry guys, I can do no better than stare up at your Beautiful instruments from the muck-mire of poverty....)

    Don't worry......for that kind of cash I'm sure you'll get lots of PM's...........esp. if you don't even want it finished.
    THere's plenty of capable builders in here... :hyper:

    You may be better off posting this in the Basses wanted forum. It's the best place if you are looking for stuff.

    A fully finished Valenti 5er is well within your price limit. Do a search (on Google or here).

    I'd definitely keep my eyes open for a preowned Metro.
