    None. At all.
    Very cool!

    Is it a used piece of fairly recent build?

    I think it's purdy.

    I would buy it if my wife could refrain from killing me after I did so....

    See the 4-sale forum. Or email: carl.brusky@gapac.com

    If it had a Morado or birdseye board I may have already jumped. JimS (I think) spoiled me with his Sadowsky!

    I'm not really one for J basses, but that is stunning.

    Add one more to that, split it in 2 & I'd have 2 perfect basses. :)

    Cool. Personally, I don't like the pearloid guard & if it had BirdsEye board with the pearloid, DAMN, that would be overkill. Personally, I'd put a clear guard on it so I can see the quilt.

    I feel that Sadowsky basses are horribly overpriced for what they are.. But, DAMN they do make em' purdy!!!

    anyone know if anyone has ever made a 7 string fender style bass? I know there have benn 6ers before. I suppose the vibe would be lost with 7 strings, and the people adventurous enough to have 7 strings would probably want a different body style and things like that......If nobody has made one before (or even if someone has), I'm going to make an 8 string P-bass someday.

    that Sadowsky is purdy. The quilt is really small over most of it, which is nice.

    Aw shucks. If you really want morado or a figured maple fingerboard I'm sure Roger would put a new neck on it --now or later depending on your situation--for a fee.

    I think the bass looks very hip.
    Translucent red often looks better in real life than in photos too.

    Its hotness could be improved by the addition of a flamed maple fretboard, abalone dots and some gold hardware.

    And some fuzzy dice. Then it'd be properly pimped out.
  17. I just pulled the trigger and ordered a new Sadowsky 2 days ago or I might consider that one....I can see her with a Morado board...I bet she would be killin...

    GO FOR IT ! ! !

    Maybe I am dumb. I dont like any fenders looks man. They sound great as hell though. But thi one look like a fender to me except it has a way glossier finish. I dont mean to pick on it man but I am just putting my regardless 2 cents in on what I think is a sickly lookin bass.

  20. Hey,

    I ordered a 4 Banger
    Quilted Caramel Burst Top on Swamp Ash
    Morado Board
    Passive Option
    Black hardware

    Pretty much a clone of Nino's latest...(I understand you played his) I LOVED the Caramel Burst...I almost ordered a clone of your JJ...Birdseye and all but I really like Rosewood or Morado on a board...seems to feel better to me...Hopefully she will be ready by my Birthday on October 8th...I told Roger not to sweat it if he could not make the date as long as I get her sooner or later...I've got other toys to keep me busy until then but I am already getting anxious!! LOL!!
