Howdy,

I've got a Standard 4 fretless in the queue (see attached photo- vintage tint chambered ash body, lined ebony board, black hardware).

Anyone out there with a Sadowsky fretless, please post links to any audio files you have to keep me going during the wait!

Don't have any good audio clips yet of my fretless. Just some YouTube stuff with crappy audio. So in lieu of that, here are some pics of the fretless I had made for me last year. It is a NYC Standard 4, Spalted Maple on Swamp Ash and HC pickups in the 70's location....for some extra mwah!

I figured this would be a short thread... though I can't figure out why we don't see a lot more Sadowsky fretlesses. They make a GREAT fretless!
Mine: Vintage 5 alder/ebony/fat stacks. I'm considering swapping the FSs for Big Singles. It sounds great but is a touch "polite".

I owned a fantastic PJ fretless and I'll own another one in the future. I only sold it because I'm playing more and more upright bass and didn't have the time to really work out on the electric.

Mine was ash/ebony with PJ pickups and was also routed for JJ.

Thanks guys- great "eye candy"!

I guess I'll just have to lay down a bunch of my own tracks once I get my fretless, and post them here!

I discovered the same issue when I played DB + BG. It gave me an entirely new dimension of respect for the master "doublers" like Christian McBride, Avishai Cohen, John Patitucci, and Brian Bromberg.

However, I decided to focus on the fretless rather than the DB, then sought out the best fretless for me/my voice... Since first playing my Metro RS4 in 2009 it became futile to consider any other brand. Coupled with Roger's top class customer service, placing an order for the fretless was a no-brainer.

whenever I decide to play fretless again the brand will be out of the question.  Wink

Now belongs to me, here is Fran's old (well, 2009-8) fretless. Fran will have to find another one when he goes back to fretless again  Grin

SWEEEET! I've got a standard 4 + lined ebony, natural/vintage tint + black HW in the queue that I imagine will look similar to your bass minus the PG and with 2 J pickups.

Do you have any sound clips?

No clips worth publishing yet...
You should expect no less than a totally killer fretless!
