For Sale Sadowsky NYC 24-5 Ash / Roasted Maple / Soapbars

F Bass
Available on

Up for sale is my Sadowsky NYC 24-5 with some beautiful birdseye maple that has been roasted to perfection!
This bass sounds as good as it looks and is in excellent condition. Selling because I am buying a new house and moving in a few weeks. So listing this primarily as FOR SALE because I need the cash for moving expenses.
The only trade Ill consider will be for a Sadowsky Metro Will Lee 5 string +cash coming to me. If you have a Metro WL5, please PM your trade offer.
Sale price is $4,900 OBO shipped via FedEx to the lower 48 states.
Bass will ship with the RoadRunner gig bag it came to me in. If interested, I have 2 other case options we can discuss, a new Sadowsky portabag that came with my MV5, and a Gator TSA hardshell case. Currently strung with Sadowsky blue label Nickel strings.

For those not familiar with Sadowsky pricing, the Master Grade woods and the Roasted Maple option add a pretty penny (~$2,000) to the base price for a 5-string NYC ($4,800). Refer to the current price list on the Sadowsky website for details.
