Of course you will...

Roger: “I would love to sell you a pick guard, it will be a $35 and international shipping is $20. Sorry but you’ll get charged import duty too.”

Hans: “I would love to sell you a pick guard, our made in China range cost €80 each, our made in Germany range costs €120 each, and our master built made in Germany range costs €240 each except for the tort which is €250. Postage on all of them is €32.”

I have sent Warwick an e-mail about the new chinese sads and Ms. Florence Wilfer replied next day.

I had a bad time with Sadowsky pickguard for a Metro. They sent me two from different batches direct from NYC and they just didn't fit. Nothing on the NYC guys, they explained that the fit is "very different" to the US models, and the design has changed over the years. So unless your Metro matches the stock they have, it could be WAY off, size wise. 

To their credit, they refunded all costs, and were extremely helpful, but be aware before paying any hefty shipping fees.

Will see - my two are the last batch, so hopefully any leftover stock would be more recent.

My new mate Rog (he likes it when I call him that)...

Just casually exchanging e-mails, discussing favourite ice cream flavours etc.

He’s coming for a brew when all this lockdown business is over...

Have you had the FB friend add? I felt almost like I’d been knighted within the realms of Sadowskydom when that friend request popped up! 🙇🏼‍♂️🗡

We’ll see...I’ve effectively got £5000 worth of his gear. Maybe he will soon...

It was after going to the shop to choose these for a custom build, just before the shop had to close for the virus. Whether this build will now happen, and if so, when, remains to be seen! 😢

I've found a nice Sadowsky decal and my Sire has promised not to tell if I don't when we start gigging again.

Besides Andy will shortly be onto Wals, no doubt one he accidentally gets in a trade for a couple of Sads...
