    Hi Guys,
    I'm very sad to report that my Sadowsky NYC 24F/5 was stolen in the early hours of this morning whilst loading up after a gig at the Bier Keller, Coppid Beech Hotel, Bracknell, Berkshire in the UK. The bass is quite distinctive -spalted Maple on a '59 burst, Ebony fretboard, black headstock, serial number 4424. I know most of our friends in the USA are unlikely to see this the other side of the Atlantic but to any Tb'ers UK in particular, I'd be grateful if you could keep your eyed and ears peeled. EBAy etc. Needless to say I am totally gutted at this sad event. Thanks for reading this. I attach pictures which might be of help.

    Rest assured, the culprit will burn in Hell for that act when it's all said and done.

    +10 to Roger Sadowsky for posting a prompt response, and taking the extra time and effort to keep track of his basses for such reasons. Definitely a big benefit to the Bass/guitar playing community.

    (...now if he'd just make a fanned fret bass... ;) ...)

    This absolutely infuriates me, even tho I'm thousands of miles away and it's not my bass. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    My most sincere wishes for a speedy reunion!!!!

    Well, hopefully the long arms of TB will catch this guy trying to sell the bass somewhere. I'm sorry to hear about this. In a way I would think that because this bass is so unique it make recovering it more likely.

    Dude., until your bass is found I will look at every Spalted Sadowski with an investigators eye. That is horrible! Im sure the person that took in didnt even know what they took. Thats not a everyday instrument which makes it a lot easier to identify. Keep your head up.

    :spit: to those who just think they can take what someone else has spent their hard-earned money on. This kind of stuff really ticks me off!

    Dude, I am so sorry. I sure pray that you get it back. Good luck and God bless.

    :spit: Man, people like that make me sooo mad!
  16. I'll bump this one up again.
    Man, sorry to hear about this.

    That is a really crap thing to have happen.

    Hopefully you will recover it soon. In the meantime, I am prerrty sure that the other TBers along with myself will keep a lookout for it should anyone think they could get away with selling it on E-Bay.

    Again, sorry to hear that
  18. what a beautiful bass

    must be hard on you to lose such a great instrument

    ill keep my eyes open

    The guitar player in one of the bands I play with had his guitar stolen from a show in Boston this past summer. Through the power of the internet, we got it back two days later, unharmed. I wish you the same luck we had on the safe return of your bass. Post this info everywhere you can, and we'll all keep an eye out for it.
    Best of luck, and let's find this bass.
