I knew J.W. Black from the 70's as he was a customer of mine when I ran the repair department at Medley Music in PA.  J. moved to the midwest and worked at a repair shop for several years.  I brought him to NY to help me in 1984 when I was building guitars for Prince.  In the fall of 1985 he moved to NYC to work for me full time.  He departed in 1989 and worked for many years at the Fender custom shop.


Thank you for this history.

Same guy.

Jay worked with Roger and then went to Fender.

I see, thanks!

Hi guys,
I have a plan of buying Sadowsky's early model. Back of the headstock, there's a name "J. Black & R. Sadowsky"
But I wonder if 'J. Black' is same builder as Fender's Jay W. Black.
Is there anybody who knows about this ?

I'm really considering this used Sadowsky NYC guitar, ( Check the URL below)

Why I'm asking this problem here is because seller doesn't any reply to my question. I don't know why..

everything looks good, but pickup is somewhat different from recent one.

I mean, Sadowsky pickup's magnetic part is usually black.
just like this

but this ebay item has seemingly normal pickup color.

Roger, have you ever produced and mounted that kind of pickups ?

Waiting for your reply

Hi guys,
This is my first posting here,

Let me introduce my Sadowsky NYC strat. Actually I don't have any exact informations of my guitar.
If Roger see this post, could you please check my guitar.

I got this guitar 2years ago from a person in Korea. At that time, he said this was made near 1991. But I'm not sure of this.
Please see attached pictures.

Headstock says Sadowsky LTD.
Back of head, there's a serial number that starts 8##, rest of two digits were erased by something or someone.
Buzz feitened.
Signature is by Kim Jong jin (Korean guitarist who has Hiram Bullock's original Fender stratocaster and also uses early Sadowsky too)

If there's any databases of early guitars, I'd like to know the exact serial number.
