OK, I've finally decided to take the plunge and buy a NYC Sad of my very own. I don't foresee buying another for some time, so I am looking for opinions from Sad Fanatics on the following: If you could only choose one Sadowsky configuration, which would it be and why? My current line-up of basses is listed below in my signature. I haven't had the chance to play the Warwick yet (should arrive in a week or so), and I'm not sure I'm going to like it yet. But if I don't, I will sell it and buy another more modern fiver like a Roscoe or Quantum, so I don't need to cover that base (no pun intended) with the Sadwosky. I love my other two basses and will never sell them: the fretless jazz and p-bass on steriods. So, what I am looking for is the Sine Qua Non of Sadwoskys, that is, the configuration that defines the very essence of the Sadwosky sound and playability. I want my first Sadowsky to be one that whenever I pick it up and play it, it just makes my blood boil. BTW, I am equally happy with a 4 or 5 string, so if that is a nonvariable, I would go with the fiver for versatility. Other than that, any info on most desired wood combos, 24 fret vs. standard vs. ultra-vintage would me most welcome. And yes, for that guy that loves to post the proverbial, "the search engine is your friend" response, let me pre-empt you by stating that I have read more Sadwosky threads than I care to mention over the past few days. I am looking for a fresh and considered response in light of those previous threads. Thanks in advance for any who take the time to respond.
