1  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Metro RV4 Dimensions? on: March 19, 2012, 05:55:36 PM
Hi DT,

I own a RV4 '59 Burst and I own a '76 Fender Jazz.  When I read your question it got me thinking, so I got out a tape measure, got my 2 basses and started measuring.  The difference amounts to about a 1/2 inch in each measurement or if you took a router to the '76 and removed a 1/4 inch all the way around, you would basically have an RV4.
What I would consider a bigger question is regarding the PU placement.  There is a noticeable difference between the '60 and '70 positions.  They both sound great but I would recommend that you make your decision based on that rather than body size.  Truth be told, I don't notice any difference in the body size when I play, what I notice is the difference in the necks and the sound.

Food for thought!

They both look great!  My first response was black, but the more I looked at the photo, the gold really grew on me.

FYI, I was watching Letterman the other night, Will Lee's day job, and I caught a glimpse of Will playing a white Sadowsky that I had never seen before.  There weren't any really good shots of the bass but it looked like it had a soapbar in the bridge position.  I emailed Roger and he confirmed that it was a new bass and that it had soapbars in the 60's position, and Will loves it!
So, how about a WL5 with soapbars in the 60's position; sounds great on the tube.

Something to think about.

I'm in the witness protection program, but I will narrow it down to Upstate NY somewhere between Saratoga and Lake George.

Couldn't agree more!  The amount of tone shaping at your disposal on a Sadowsky bass is just fantastic!!

Are you using a tuner when you do your intonation?  If so what kind?  In the past I have noticed that tuners that use needles can be problematic due to line of sight.  If you are just a little off you can end up with the problem you referenced in your post.  That being said, if you are not using a tuner try one, and if you are, try a different one.  I really notice that my intonation is off when I tune all the open strings, then I play open D string and F# on the 11th fret on the G string and I can tell it is off.  That drives me crazy!

Well Good Luck, K

I know this was posted a few weeks ago, but if you are still in the market for a modern sounding head I would recommend the Genz-Benz shuttle 6.0.
It is light weight 3.75 lbs. has 375W/8 ohms and 600W/4 ohms.  Also has a tube preamp for when you want some overdrive.  I couldn't be happier with mine, it is very well made and it won't break the bank.
