    Here in Detroit we have a "Detroit Bass Players" of Facebook page and one of our 501 members owns this bass.

    this is the sweetest Sadowsky I have ever seen.
  2. The neck on that bass is pretty smokin'
    as for the pattern of the body, its nice also but
    not totally my cup. It is pretty fricken sweet though.

    thanks for sharing the pic.
  3. All Sadowsky's are the best bass ever. :) That one is nice but I would personally prefer a dark fingerboard with that top.
  4. sweetest Sadowsky is this one IMO:

    Kerry, That bass is so ugly it should be thrown in a dumpster. The dumpster behind my house in Redford. ;)

    Yes, it's sweet. If you like the boutique figured wood look, here are more honeys from the Recently Sold page:








    Lots of 24 fretters because I was looking for this bass in particular. For some reason, I think it has the prettiest top:

    I prefer colors, though:

    It's distinctive, that's for sure. I've never been a big fan of that greeny buckeye burl - it makes me think of a sick tree. I can see why some people would love it, though, and that's certainly a fine specimen (nice birdseye board too). :)

    Well, that's what causes it. :)

    I'm generally not a fan of it either. I've seen some nice looking pieces though.

    This one has always brought me to tears. No fancy top, just plain old ash. But masterfully matched and crafted. Wish I owned it.

    #5550 from the group above with the Nordstrand Big Singles? Where the heck did that come from? Different pickup placement too. Yowsa. Any Sad insiders know the story with it? Prototype?
