I haven't ever seen a Sadowsky guitar in person.  Lots of basses, though.  So are there any particular features of your green one that stand out?
It's from 1990 and has the OBP (off, variable mid boost, and gain boost +/- mid boost) and the hotter of the two bridge pups Roger was offering at the time: similar to the now d/c'd Dimarzio Double Whammy with an attenuated sweet high end and bass roll off. The neck is similar to a Dimarzio Al Dimeola. The in-between sounds are very funky and actually a bit thinner than a typical strat. Tremelo is a Gotoh vintage style from that era.
Pau ferro fingerboard and alder body with a maple cap are the tone woods.

 I know this is a Sadowsky forum and you expect to read the typical praise but this is one of the most amazing sounding guitars I've ever owned and certainly the most versatile. .....Plays like the proverbial buttah. ...incredible for metal, rock, country, funk, blues.  I've been in a few bands with it, recorded with it, and everbody in my son's grindcore metalband says it  sounds insane through the Soldano SLO.  My son is a very good drummer with good ears and he always says that the green guitar is blistering with harmonics.

Here are close ups of the fingerboard I took a couple of weeks ago:   Grin

I'm jealous of the black four string.
Mine?  It's an amazing sounding bass. Just incredibly punchy and huge.

I don't know if they are reasonably priced but it truly is a remarkable sounding amp and I will only sell mine under the most dire of conditions.  Oh, make sure you can manage a 40 lb head.

That's a fun idea for a thread.

Last time I was there, Roger and my g/f became so enraptured with discussing photography and camera gear that I was completely forgotten.

Happy Birthday, R.

I love you!

Soldano for the guitars and Sadowsky for the basses.  (I just sold the Surf Box.)
Also a Kern IP 777 >  Crown K2 > EA VL210 is another bass rig and doubles as great
rig for amplified acoustics like my Sadowsky electric nylon and steel string acoustics.

They've been in business for quite a while. They have some impressive endorsees.

OK thanks. Trigger pulled.

I've heard about them.

Are they any good?

My bass player loves my Sadowsky so much he got one of his own, the Metro above.

Here is with two of mine:

Sure the basses tend to get all the fame and are the reason Roger and crew have to dodge the paparrazzi.  But his guitars are outrageous!


I highly suggest you play a Sadowsky if you have the means.
This is what happens when you play a Sadowsky in public:
