Sadowsky NYC Vintage 5-21  -  Red Gum/Morado 

This Sadowsky Vintage 5-21 looks, sounds and feels great, with its two-tone, bookmatched Australian Red Gum top, over a lightweight, chambered alder body (with accent line) and two quiet Sadowsky J-style pickups. 

The maple neck has a thin, matte nitro finish that lets your hand glide effortlessly (Sadowsky basses are amazingly easy to play). The fingerboard is Morado with a comfortable 12” radius and 1.875” nut width.

Tonally, the 5-21 features a pair of Sadowsky J-style pickups through the Sadowsky Treble and Bass boost pre-amp with push-pull bypass control for classic, articulate Sadowsky sound. The controls are: Master volume, pickup blend, treble roll-off (VTC—vintage tone control) with pre-amp bypass, stacked bass/treble cut/boost. The proprietary hardware includes a Sadowsky black brass bridge with quick release and custom Hipshot/Sadowsky Ultralight tuning gears. A softshell case is included.

A Sadowsky bass is an investment, and of course, we know better than to guarantee you’ll love it. But if you don’t, we need to talk.
