‘Roger Sadowsky is one of the most highly respected instrument makers in the world. He gained early acclaim for outstanding repair and restoration work on guitars and basses.
In the early 1980s, the heated vintage market increasingly pushed guitars and basses out of reach for working musicians. In response, Roger realized that it made sense to build instruments from scratch that incorporated all of the improvements that he had developed over the years. Additionally, his background in acoustic guitar building helped him to build lightweight, acoustically resonant instruments.
Today, Roger leads an experienced team that is dedicated to improving building techniques and finding innovative materials to build the best instruments for his customers.
After many decades of producing some of the world’s most coveted instruments, Roger’s greatest joy continues to be witnessing the complete satisfaction a customer receives when making music with a Sadowsky instrument.’
Finish: Black Nitro-Cellulose
This is a lovely 5-string Jazz Bass produced out of New York by the revered Sadowsky Company. It presents in great condition with very little player wear. There are a few small dents and scratches on the body but nothing offensive. A small channel has been neatly cut for ease of accessibility to the truss rod for adjustment. The guitar is setup with Bartolini pickups which sound great, along with a passive/active switch with vintage tone controls.
The Sadowsky looks striking, with its sleek black nitro finish and ebony fretboard; a real black beauty!
This guitar is owned and has been played by an Australian professional player and hence lives up to the standard required for performance at the highest level.
Comes with its original flight case in great condition.
