181  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Nordstrand Big Singles on a 5er on: June 05, 2010, 03:10:07 PM
not to derail the op, has anyone tried Nordy DC's in a 5/24?

I have!  They are a very fine pickup.  My dilemma was that the single coil mode sounded better to me than either series or parallel in dual coil mode.  So I decided to offer the Big Singles instead.

Truth be told, flat wound strings are the most prone to defective strings.  The two most common defects are bad intonation or excessive buzzing.    Regarding intonation, the question is "are you unable to get the string to intonate within the range of your bridge adjustment?".  If the answer to that is "yes", the string is defective.  If it just requires a significant readjustment from your previous string, that is probably OK and normal.

A defective string due to buzzing will buzz everywhere, usually not on just a specific fret.

In order to make a replacement pickguard, we need you to send us your current one.  Unfortunately, we have tweaked and changed our pickguards several times over the years.  If we are able to replace your guard from our current patterns, the cost is $75.  If we have to copy your guard and hand make a replacement from scratch, the cost is $150.00.

Sending your guard to WD or Pickguard Heaven (Chandler) are additional options.

When viewing the threads listings, is there any way to click directly to the "last posting" on any given thread ?

If you see the word "new" in the thread listing, just click on "new" and it will take you to the new post.

Also on the right side of the Subject listings, in the "last post box" you will see a square of note paper with a folded corner and an arrow pointing to the right.  Just click on that.

188  General Category / Sadowsky Forum / Milt Robinson, RIP on: May 31, 2010, 09:45:16 PM
One of my oldest clients, Milt Robinson of Bermuda, passed away last week at the age of 77.  I've known Milt since he began coming to my first NYC city shop in the early 80's.  He owned a Sadowsky solid body guitar, J-bass, electric nylon guitar and an archtop too.  He was a wonderful friend and was the "godfather" to all the musicians in Bermuda.  He had a heart attack while taking a cello lesson.

My sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

We are out of stock on our Ultralite cases for bass.  It will probably be 3-4 months before we have them again.

I'm tweaking things as we go along.  Today I set up a specific category for Basses and for Guitars and moved the appropriate threads.  Let me know if you have any suggestions for the general organization of the Forum.

I just increased the avatar size to 130 x 130, so if your avatar looks too small, please re-upload your avatar.  If larger than 130, the forum will automatically resize it.
