Great thread.  I'm seriously considering doing this to my beloved 4098.  Straight up natural finish MV5.  I'm gonna' do the Tru-oil, however.  I've felt that finish before and it's wonderful.  Still feels like wood, but feel a bit better about grain protection, and I think it even makes it look a bit nicer.

Here's a quick studio recording I did last year with a previous project of mine. I went straight into a DI with my Metro UV70 5-string, the #M3505. Smiley

Used both pickups, VTC rolled off a little bit while boosting the bass and treble about half way.

This is a great sounding track!  I'm just confused about one thing.  It seems like the bass is panned way over to the left in the some places.  Is that intentional, or is this a work in progress?

Sadowsky basses sound incredible in the studio. The last CD I worked on I pretty much used my Metro for the whole session. It was SO easy to get a great tone, and I was plugged direct into the board. We were jammin between some takes and it was recorded. Here is a little snip-it of that Metro. Again, direct into the board and no effects.

It was a MV4 that I was using.

Here is another snip-it using my NYC Standard Fretless.

Nicely done!!  Smiley

Thanks!  Hey that bass makes it easy to get great tone!  That's why I shop here.  LOL

Said it before, I'll say it again...

Mike, that bass of yours is unbe-friggin-lievable.  I consider myself amazingly lucky that you'll let me play it one day, and to be close enough to you geographically that I can take you up on it.  I can't wait!!  Smiley

First round is on me, of course.  Smiley

Haven't been on this site much... enough... try to get back here a bit more...

On topic, even tho this thread is kinda' "done", I remember that thread and posted in it myself.  I think it's ridiculously obvious Roger does stuff right, and it really is as simple as the fact that his long term market popularity at the highest professional levels proves it.  You can throw all the details out and just understand that.

I have 2 USA MTDs, 2 Skjolds, a Zon, a Nordstrand, an Alleva Coppolo, a Jerzy Drozd, a Warrior, a C.F. Martin, a Roscoe, an F Bass, a USA Fender, and a Japanese Fender.

I have FOUR Sadowsky basses.

Further, Roger's strongly customer oriented policies and service experience set the bar at a level very few others can reach.  As someone with over 14 years in implementing and managing a global customer and technical service department at a previous company, having purchased multiple times directly from Roger's shop, I'm well qualified to judge.

I simply can't say enough about Roger's impeccable standards in products/services and associate selection (his crew is right up there too.)  I'm proud to be an owner.

I would go even courser than 0000 steel wool.  I would lightly sand it with some 280 or 320 stearate sandpaper, just enough to cut the gloss.

Roger
From what I understand, you use a fairly thin finish on your necks, because you feel the sooner it "breaks in" (which i assume to mean exposing the actual wood surface), the better.

My question is, would sanding it like this essentially take the finish pretty much off after maybe even just a couple times doing this?
12  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: 500K Volume Pot on: July 13, 2010, 10:11:39 AM
And what about basses that already have single coils? What can we expect from the 500K pot?

...and on P or PJ basses? would it be worth the swap?

IMHO, it's still an improvement.  I'm pretty sure that's why Roger made the 500K pot standard on all models regardless of pickup type (including the PJ).  I'm not sure about the soapbar models, but I would guess the 500K pot change is literally all models from now on.
13  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: 500K Volume Pot on: July 13, 2010, 09:52:54 AM
I've done the swap and have A/B'd basses with both pots.  While I agree the 500K change is an improvement, I don't believe it's a big enough deal to recommend everyone with the older 250K pots rush out and pay a tech to swap out for the 500K.  Roger may step in on this one, but IMHO there are two important differences between the HC and the SC pickups.  One is a little more going on in the "low treble" (or high midrange to some people).  The other is more of a low-mid or mid-mid focus and punch.  IMHO, the 500K pot changes makes the high end profile of the HC to be a bit more like the SC, but does nothing to change the stuff going on a bit lower.

So the bottom line is, it's a nice improvement to the high end profile, but I'd never tell anyone that it gets them very close to the same sound as swapping HC pickups for SC.  Don't get me wrong, I love the HC pickups, but if you really want that great SC sound, there's only one way to get it.

Bravo, Roger.  Looks really nice!

Sounds good.  Smiley
