31  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Lowest Recommended Battery Voltage? on: May 12, 2011, 09:00:25 PM
If you don't have a tester... a giveaway would be distortion of your signal.  I don't know if that's the same symptom for all basses or guitars, but that's what has happened in my experience. 

As far as an actual number of volts for sag before battery replacement, I don't actually know...  I'd just listen for that "voltage sag" sound. 

You can buy a battery tester that you plug into your output jack on the sadowsky site.  Handy!

Congratulations!  That is one fine instrument!  (Jealous)

NICE WORK!  I really prefer the feel of a bare maple neck.  I did this same thing to one of my G&Ls and it turned out great!  The finish on my Sadowsky necks are both thin enough that I don't feel the need to modify them, though.  I've already mojo'd my way through.
34  General Category / Sadowsky Forum / April Fool's ? on: April 03, 2011, 06:17:33 PM
Did the Sadowsky crew put something good up this year?  I didn't make it online that day.  I still chuckle when I think about the tubes being inside of a bass. 

So... was there a nice April Fool's joke on the site?  If so, what was it?
35  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Two onboard preamp questions... on: February 24, 2011, 11:47:06 PM
So you could run two batteries together to send 18 volts to the preamp?  Or does that require a different wiring job?

36  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Ding on the fretboard on: February 24, 2011, 11:45:30 PM
Nice!  I might try this on a couple of my basses, since they all have maple boards and definitely a few dings.
37  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Ding on the fretboard on: February 22, 2011, 05:53:32 PM
is it drastically changing the feel of the bass?  I see you said it's noticable, but how bad is it?

If it was me, I'd leave it alone for now and see what the guys from Sadowsky say.  I'm always sad when I get a new ding, but then I adapt and enjoy the new character that comes along with it.

I did forget about the knobs needing to turn the opposite way.

I've messed with lefty basses, but never messed with the knobs! 

I'm sure Roger and/or crew will pop in soon and take care of the answers.  They're really good about it!
39  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Two onboard preamp questions... on: February 22, 2011, 04:50:13 PM
For lefty, all you have to do is put the pots in the order you want. 

For 18v... the answer is no.  But, you could always get something like LEDs installed that run on another battery... or keep another battery as a spare inside the box.

Jim, you slay me, man!

...

You could always grab a metro while you wait for your NYC order if your budget allows for it.  Sadowsky basses hold their value if you don't destroy them!

My friend John over there in the UK ordered a couple.  He has a stunning black vintage 5 with EMGs and this cool standard 4 with the SIMS LEDs. 

The possibilities are endless! 

If I lived in the UK, I wouldn't mind loaning you a bass, but shipping from here to there is expensive! 

Either way, you will enjoy a Sadowsky bass or 20 of them... Metro or NYC, you really can't go wrong!
41  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Neck joint upgrade on: February 12, 2011, 03:40:35 PM
That's right.  The necks and bodies are matched and carefully crafted by hand to ensure a nice snug fit!
42  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Neck joint upgrade on: February 11, 2011, 07:44:31 PM
I'm unfamiliar with what you're referring to... care to elaborate?
43  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Jazz pickup locations - 60s vs 70s on: February 10, 2011, 11:48:31 PM
I don't know the specifics of Fender basses themselves, but pickups that are closer to the neck tend to grab some more low end and over tones, IMO.  I've had some Jazz basses, PJs, Ps and even a Tobias with one big fat Bartolini in it. 

I'm a huge fan of having a nice spread on pickups.  I think it looks cooler and I like the overall sound when both pickups are on 100% or the pickup pan is centered.

I've always been curious about the soapbar locations on Modern Sadowsky models.  Though it's true that you still get plenty of low end with them both closer to the bridge.

SO... have you played many JJ basses with different pickup placements?  What did you think?
44  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Metro Ultra Vintage - 70's - who's got one? Feedback? on: February 07, 2011, 11:34:21 PM
I have yet to run into any Sadowsky bass, NYC or Metro, that I don't like.  I own two NYCs and have played many Metro basses. 

If I'm not mistaken, we can't put basses for sale in these forums.  Keep an eye on Talkbass, Ebay and the Sadowsky In-Stock page!  You never know when that sweet treasure of a bass will show up! 

You can always call the shop.  Everyone there is friendly and they're always happy to help steer you toward the perfect Sadowsky bass!
