[TRADED] Sadowsky NYC Will Lee 5

Post by swalexbass » 02 Jan 2018, 14:04

Happy New Year Ozbass! :hyper:

For trade is my Sadowsky NYC Will Lee 5. I am putting this up for trade to explore other options, as I have other Jazz Basses and I want to try something different.

This bass, it needs no words. It is an absolute beast of a bass which oozes quality. Roger Sadowsky has added and/or modified several important facets to the J-Bass design in order to facilitate Will Lee's requests (e.g. narrower neck and outboard parametric midrange boost box to grant access to more mid-range punch to cut through when playing live).

This bass exhibits top notch construction and craftsmanship like all other Sadowsky basses. Provides super-smooth playability and a huge array of tonal possibilities while maintaining that trademark Sadowsky tone. Thanks to the mid boost circuit, this bass can cut through the heaviest of mixes like hot knife through butter. Cosmetics are wonderful too with the top quality Rosewood top which really adds to its boutique-ness.

Specifications:
» Mahogany Body (Chambered)
» Rosewood Top Finish
» Sadowsky Single Coil Pickups
» African Ebony Fingerboard, 22 Frets
» Sadowsky Preamp with Will Lee Mid Boost Circuit (Controls bandwidth & frequency)
» Nut Width: 1.75"
» Weight: 3.6kg
» Serial #6895, January 2015

Included with the bass is the Sadowsky original hard case in mint condition plus all the bits and pieces that came with the bass originally, including the specification letter.

With all these specifications, one would be looking at ~8,000 AUD for the bass alone (without shipping and import tax... and waiting time) according to the official Sadowsky Price List.
I will set the sale/trade value at ~$6,000 ONO.

Although I would prefer trades, sale is also considered, so please PM me for discussion.

As for trades, I would be especially happy to trade for an MTD 535 model, but also open to hear other offers of similar value. Offers via PM is preferred, but feel free to leave any questions in the comments.

I am located in Sydney, and unfortunately only local trades are considered. I have limited free time outside of work, so make serious offers only please before coming to see the bass. Thanks for reading :)
