  1. I don't know if this one is simple. But it sure grooves all the way. Thanks for sharing.
  2. The pics of the pickups: Neck pickup: Bridge pickup: Nobody asked for these. But here you are nonetheless 😁:
  3. I will send a pic of each one when I have the time. Thanks to you
  4. Thanks indeed, Laranjo, but I am not interested in this trade. Please offers by PM.
  5. The fretboard is rosewood for sure, but I couldn't tell which species. Not sure about the pickups either, I am not an expert on the field at all. But it is worth mentioning that they have different Sadowsky logos on them, so one of them is not original. Maybe it was replaced when the VTC was installed. Love your Sado, by the way. Gorgeous.
  6. The Sado is going back to the original price: 2550 pounds. I will include freight in the price, though, to make things easier to everyone.
  7. Standing in the shadows of Motown is a lot of fun. But some of the pieces are quite complicated, particularly from a rythmical standpoint. The bass tradition, by Todd Coolman, is also a very good book.
  8. Manudepaz is also a great guy. Buy with confidence. The bass looks amazing, indeed.
  9. Thanks, Niall. I saw you were looking for a fretless Sado and had the same thinking. My current fretless is a defretted Fender American Series with an epoxy coating, and it is a great instrument. But, to be honest, I would personally not buy a bass to have it defretted (the Fender was already fretless when I bought it). So I can't advice you to do what I would not do myself. Merry Christmas everyone, by the way.
  10. I used to play with a jazz band in the Bilbao area until a couple of years ago. Something totally amateur, just local gigs for fun and a few euro. I have two children and a 9 to 6 job. I managed to get into the local music school to learn upright and that was it: I had to quit the band due to total lack of time. It was bad, the other band members were some real buddies to me and I loved playing with them. I thought I would miss it so badly. I don't. Before I realized it was a part of myself that I had left behind for good. I am way too busy to miss it, as much as I loved it before. My life has other priorities that occupy my mind and make me feel good. Taking into account the personal situation that you describe, I am pretty sure that this will pan out for you in the same way. A hard decision, people that you love, the excitement of a gig... Once you start feeling better with your overall life it will be a sweet memory, but you will have better things moving on and you won't miss it that much.
  11. I was hesitating for a while if I'd better withdraw this bass. But the fact is that I have too many basses already, so I am pushing the ad up again. A brief note on the condition of the bass: the hole on top of the headstock has got indeed a chip. Actually two of them, one on each side, about a couple of milimetres, you can see them on the pics. I have never considered it a problem at all, but the issue came out in some private messages I exchanged, so I prefer to mention it here to avoid any further questions or eventual missunderstandings. The dings on the body are visible in the pictures. They are part of the reason for the low price of the bass. That being said, I think that it is more than fairly priced, therefore I may consider trade suggestions (eventually), but not bargaining on the price. For one pence less than this money I prefer keeping it for sure (and maybe even for this money, but that is nobody's problem but mine...) Best, Gorka
  12. It is a Jerzy Drozd Basic 5. Not sure about the construction year, apparently no spring chicken (despite its excellent playing condition). I will check out the serial number at home and send it to you per personal message, so that we don't push the ad any more for the time being. Thanks to everyone for the excellent feedback and for the questions.
