Since 1979, Sadowsky Guitars has been committed to the “working musician.” In that spirit, we are pleased to present the Satin Series: built on the same benches and by the same builders as any other NYC bass at a more attractive starting price.
By limiting models and options, we can offer these NYC-made basses at nearly half the price of built-to-order custom instruments.
Satin Series basses feature ash bodies with maple fingerboards or alder bodies with rosewood fingerboards. The J-style bass is fitted with a pair of our humcancelling pickups with ‘60s wind, while the 24-fret Modern style has soapbar pickups in “bridge forward” locations. There are no custom options available for the Satin Series. The bodies are chambered and the necks are graphite-reinforced, just like all of our NYC basses. We only offer solid colors with a satin finish.
For the electronics, we use our prewired preamp assembly (our NYC basses are hand wired). The hardware is the same Hipshot licensed tuners and custom bridge that we use on our MetroLine Series.
We feel these basses are 100% Sadowsky NYC and there are no areas where we cut costs that would compromise the quality of these instruments.
