NBD and it’s a Ripper!

Recommended Posts

Well I’ve been after one for a while, spotted this for sale and after a few chats with @AndyTravis about what to look for and expect I bought it. Angry Ric he said. Absolutely spot on, man it’s killer and what a fat sound! Spot on for a bit Nirvana. Don’t expect to see it for sale, honest! It’s a keeper 😍

Look at it, round bottomed goodness 😂

Yes, and rightly so, wasn’t the Hundred Years War your fault? Tsk.

Not blame, just a great soundboard for decision making 😉

To be fair I’d wanted a sadowsky for a long time... 

@walshy that’s a cracker mate. 👍🏻

I pushed you over the edge though. Like a bad person should...

My own? Jenny’s reaction to the EBS cab was a close second to her signing for the Sadowsky 😂

Always liked these but my good lady didn't like the look... until we watched a YouTube bass video and she had to admit it had the best sound of all the basses!

Whenever I see these basses I think of Adam & The Ants, their bassist Kevin Mooney used one on Top of The Pops and the 14/15 year old me was intrigued as everyone else was using Fenders or Rickenbackers.

Always “smells like teen spirit” on TOTP.

love the look of these, and the sounds - but don’t suit what the band’s doing and too nice to just have one sat on a stand. 
 

Same with the RD - absolute childhood dream bass but after a stint with a Thunderbird, I know those reverse offset shapes make me look fat and short 😂

Great I have an RD incoming too and I’m already short and fat 😂

I know. I’m everyone’s favourite bad influence though...I think.

That looks in great condition. Love my Ripper to bits, alas mine was fairly well beaten and modded before it came to me. A tip top one has been on my wish list since.
