That Duesenberg suits you much better than the Sadowsky. Looks fantastic on stage :cool:

What are they like soundwise, and is it a standard 34" scale?

My daughter’s blue Mikro and the fretless MIJ Jazz that I picked up in the classifieds here.



I keep chasing after a blue custom Dingwalls and keep ending up with orange and natural ones.

The Sadowsky was a great bass but something about it never really clicked with me. Nothing against them, I still own one.

The Duesenberg is a 30" scale, but it plays very "long" because the bridge is such a long way from the end of the bass. The "reach" for the left hand is not far shorter than for a standard scale when it's on the strap.

Soundwise I don't really know what to say about the Duesenberg except that it's pretty versatile. I play it finger style, plucked over the bridge pickup. The front pickup is thick and robust without the sustain that you'd get from most solid bodies I guess. The bridge pickup sounds to me like a hollow, non-sustaining and slightly thinner version of a Jazz bass bridge pup. I don't think I've ever used the bridge pup solo'd at a gig and can't imagine I would. I've recorded with both pups on full and loved it but that never seems to work live. Live if it's a boomy room I start with both pups full and wind off the front pup until I'm happy. If it's thin I wind off the bridge pup until I'm happy - often that ends up all the way off.

It's a pretty nice bass and I would use it more often except (a) We downtune a semitone and while it sounds fine I generally prefer something else playing-wise. And (b) we play a lot of fairly sketchy gigs and there have been a number of issues with idiots and I can't bring myself to take a semi-hollow with an angled headstock to a lot of our venues. For gigs in concert pitch with a decent stage, I very often take the Duesenberg and I've enjoyed it every time.
