 Hello Mr. Sadowsky & staff ! Hello everyone ! I would like to ask about choices and preferences of Sadowsky's artists or other famous bass players who bring their instruments to Mr. Sadowsky workshop. Wink I'm very interesting about their strings choice, bass setup preferences, string height etc. Could you give me some specs please ? Wink Of course if it's not a secret or too much private info. Greetings from Poland !

Well said. 

I have many reasons for sticking to my Sadowsky basses and I only ever plan to own Sadowsky instruments, unless I find a cool 8-10 string bass for noodling around on. 

I'm even having extreme difficulty dealing with replacing my Sadowsky basses with more Sadowsky basses.  It's weird, but great.  My 4480 plays like a dream.  I'm trying to get my black one as playable as my blue one.  Might send it to the Sadowsky team for a setup soon.

Sage advice.  As much as I love wood finishes, if I buy a painted instrument, I leave it as is.

There is no doubt the nicest looking ash is reserved for natural finishes.  Paint grade ash might have some natural defects or other qualities that did not make it suitable for natural or burst finishes.

Hi all.
I have a 2006 model Metro MV5 Black.
A part of me kinda want to sand it up and make it Natural.
What kinda quality wood should i expect underneath?
Same as the factory natural ones or are those selected specially for their looks?

Best David

A while ago I acquired a fine used Metro with Blue Label 40 strings. They are round wound with blue silk on the ends. How would I know whether they are stainless steel or nickel?

As Gerard said, haters gonna hate.  These fanatics think what's best for them must be best for everyone.  These ignorami should be ignored if possible.  "When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kind of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt." -Robert M. Pirsig

That said, the hate goes both ways to a certain extent.  Some boutique players show the same hate to low end imports, or even production line basses such as Fender.  Hatin' the low end is as bad as hatin' the high end.  The desired result is good music: the tool might matter to the player, but not the listener.

Hate aside, there's a legitimate difference of opinion on whether a boutique is "worth it".  For some, a Fender or even Squier is good enough, and that's fine.  If I couldn't afford Sadowsky, I would be satisfied with Fender.  But I can afford Sadowsky, and the difference in quality is well worth the difference in price to me.

Slow Friday today... is it the weekend yet??
