Sold - please lock - Sadowsky NYC Deluxe 4-21
Nr Minehead, Somerser

Recommended Posts

Sadowsky NYC Deluxe 4-21 flame maple, caramel burst, with a Pau Ferro fingerboard. 4A flame maple top, 2 band eq with VTC. Weighs in at 7lb 15oz (3.5 kilos).

I bought this new for £3,600 five months ago to be the bass to end all GAS, but after a few gigs (without it, it’s never left the house) I’ve realised I won’t ever use it in the sort of places where I gig. It’s immaculate, and is staying that way.

Any trial or test is most welcome. Here’s a link to the original BassDirect ad:


Here’s a bit more spec:

Body - Alder chambered
Top - 4A Flame maple
Neck - Maple, 34” scale
Nut width - 3.81cm
Fingerboard - Pau Ferro
Fingerboard radius - 12”, 21fret
Pickguard - Parchment
Pickups - Sadowsky Hum Cancelling
Preamp - Sadowsky, 2 band, VTC
Bridge - Sadowsky, high mass
Tuners - Hipshot Ultra Lights
Case - Sadowsky Softcase

Happy to ship anywhere (I have the Sadowsky case and box), but I want the money in my bank account before it leaves here, and I’d strongly recommend a quality courier and insurance.

I’ll get some nice photos done outside if it ever stops raining here.
Stop Press - still raining, so here’s some fresh indoor shots, taken without a flash:

      ***This is now been sold. Thank you for your interest.***
      Hello everyone,
      I have given up on the dream. Middle age has won and I'm selling (nearly) all my gear, including this fantastic instrument. I bought it second-hand, and since then it has never been gigged, just used for fun and recording at home, and always put back in the case (included) at the end of the day. Sounds and plays great, as you would expect from these. It's in a very good cosmetic shape (see pics). 
      Not much to say, really, other than it should go to someone who intends to use it more than me.
      I'm not interested in any trades, sorry. I need to get rid of stuff, not just replace one thing with another. I think I've priced this fairly, so hopefully that helps you make up your mind.
      It's 4.3kg on my bathroom scales.
      Local pickup preferred but I'm sure we can agree something if you need it delivered.
      Happy to answer any questions.
      For virus-related reasons, I need to shift this quickly now. Price dropped to £1450.
      (Ps. I'm also selling an Xotic XP4 - look for that posting as well, if you're interested.)

      Hi all!
      My Toto tribute band “Totally Toto” decided to do a lockdown video as we’re all missing playing together and doing gigs.
      We decided to tackle the instrumental “Dave’s Gone Skiing”
      Next on the list is Pamela, that will be released shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this:

      New (to me) 1996 Sadowsky NYC Modern 5!
      Currently outfitted with Seymour Duncan / Fodera ‘NYC’ pickups and a Glockenklang 2-band pre. There was some discolouration and screw hole repair damage from a previous pickguard, so I made and installed a pickguard to cover it up and I think it looks way better (before and after photos in the post). Run passive here, outer coils selected, blended towards neck, tone flat.
      It also came with the original EMG 40Js and the Sadowsky pre, which might find its way in again at some point; have to say it already sounds terrific as it is, but seems crazy to have a Sadowsky NYC without the Sadowsky pre in it.
      Going to live with it a while, but if I really love it I might get it refinished sympathetically as the screw holes look like they were refinished by a toddler with plasticine.
