  1. Regarding Roger Sadowsky retiring. I read somewhere that he has no plans to ever retire and he’d prefer to just keep working and die at his workbench! I wouldn’t mind putting money on that Roger is mentoring Lisa to take over.
  2. Ultra rare Rickenbacker 4003 in Fireglo. One of only three known to exist and the only one still in playable condition. As we all know, John Hall copyrighted the design so hard that even Rickenbacker themselves were unable to legally manufacture them, and all traceable examples were destroyed.
  3. Almost as new MIC Fodera. I have fitted genuine US Fodera pickups that I got shipped over by Vinnie, Jr. I’ll include the originals in the sale. Gator hard case.
  4. What descriptions do you think will be seen on a Basschat of the future? I shall begin. “Up for sale is my rare example of a pre-Disney Sadowsky...”
  5. The best ‘legacy’ GK could do is restarting manufacture of the original 800RB exactly as it was.
  6. Putting up with two miserable tenor sex players week after week. We nicknamed them Statler and Waldorf. and Happy Birthday hun xx
  7. Somebody could have quite a good little side business 3D printing these things.
  8. God only knows why, but I’d had Samuel L Jackson in my mind!

    I saved up wherever I could for about 2 years so far, which isn’t easy when you’re a self employed B&B and Cattery owner. Actually, it’s my wife that does that. I saved up my bass money walking people’s dogs, and that’s no word of a lie. 😊 Granted, I could have got a Metro or MetroExpress for less but my 20+ year GAS was for an NYC. I thought this over very hard. I COULD get Metro. But the NYC gas would still be there. Also granted, I could have got a really good used ‘real’ NYC for the money I’m paying for a new Satin. But I wanted the full on experience of ordering a new Sadowsky, dealing with Roger and Carl directly, even the build time, on this, the year of my 40th birthday.
  12. Bear in mind that the What Is Hip chart is, so I’ve been informed, a semitone higher than the recording, which makes the bass part a real exercise. On the 13 horn version we use anyway.
  13. Speaking of big band jazz flavouring, here is a selection of ToP charts arranged for big band. http://www.mindformusic.com/big-band/80-artists/345-tower-of-power
