SOLD 9 MARCH 2016

Unique specs. Perfect condition.

Sadowsky NYC Ash/Spalted Maple body, Maple/BR Rosewood neck.

Nordstrand dual coils with a three position switch that enables to choose single coils
like 70's position or like 60's position ór both ('humbucking').

This means the broadest imaginable soundscape from crispy Jazzbass-a-like sounds
to fat and friendly Precision-a-like sounds and surprisingly even Ken Smith-a-like sounds.

Very light (less than 8 lbs).
Original soft shell case included.

New price €6350
Asking price €3750

No trades unless it involves Fodera 5/6 string (34 inch/19mm), Ken Smith (older <90's 5 or 6 string) or Alleva Coppolo's 5 str. (34 inch)

Higher resolution pictures on request by e-mail (a great tip how to upload
these higher resolution pictures to basic.ch appreciated too!)

Hi! No, it came originalky with Nordstrand Big Singles. Although I liked the sound with
both pickups on I found other position too
'wooly' and in general not very versatile.
I also tried Sadowsky humbuckers which sounded full and well balanced but -ofcourse- not as crispy, cutting and 'alive' as I felt the bass could sound. The Nordstrand dual Coils with the quite unique switching possibilities are offering great sound variety and bring the bass alive. I never knew pick ups make that kind of difference. By the way, the pick up cavity was untouched. The alternative pick ups I tried all fit perfectly.

Had many cool reactions. Most of them however with less desirable trade proposals. After all... this bass is still available. (I am interested in 5 or 6 string Fodera (maple or ebony, 19mm, 34 inch) or 6 string Ken Smith basses, in general: the older the better!)
