    Just when I thought I was safe and ultimately satisfied, I catch a glance of this:

    The wife will surely have my head for this.

    Sweet! :)

    Luckily (in my case) Roger doesn't make a 6-string bass. If he did, I'd be in big trouble!!!

    Man, I like the look of that bass. :cool:

    Exactly. I'd be first in line for 6-stringer from Sadowsky. However, I love my 5 just the same... BTW - how's the Valenti? That looks sweet also.

    I don't own a Valenti (as you yet ;) ) , but I've been tempted to ask Nino if he'd put together a Gecko-6 for me.

    I love his red J-style with the black block inlays, that's one sweet bass.

    Sorry man, I think I may have mixed you up with someone else. Maybe it's an omen that you should have one anyway. ;)

    I had a Fender GL and sold it because I missed the low-B. I dreamed of this day for a long time, and now it's here, but money is nowhere to be found as my F Bass BN6 is due any week now. I just hope these will be offered for a long time.

    how is it any more sweeter than a GL? is it the extra string? In that case how is it any sweeter than any black J5 w/ blocks.

    Almost bought this bass! It is just a little too heavy for me. I have to start listening to the back pain these days. So NYC only for me unless one of these rolls out at no more than 9.2 lbs. 9 is really my max.

    I came SO CLOSE to pulling the trigger on one of those, but man, i need the vtc and at that point, the voice of the IRS and my hospital bills overcame me. But it is SO FINE. Alas, I just bought something pretty close. A black Tokyo with white block and binding. This one is a light one! 8.4 pounds! immaculate. Do like the black blocks , though- but hey, the Tokyo has treble boost and cut, so no need for a vtc. And those singlecoils sure do slice.
