Sadowsky MasterBuilt Ltd. Ed. 21-Fret 5-String MM, #11 of 40
MasterBuilt basses are the the top-of-the-line for Sadowsky’s German-made basses, and this a limited-edition version on top of that (# 11 of 40). The top, fretboard and matching headstock are all made from rare Snakewood, one of the world’s densest (and beautiful) woods.
The back is torrified Swamp Ash; the neck is roasted flame maple. The pickups are Sadowsky’s passive J-style hum cancelling in the neck position, and a passive Sadowsky MM-style humbucker at the bridge. Electronics include Sadowsky’s highly regarded 2-band active preamp with Vintage Tone Control (VTC).
This is special bass. COA and Sadowsky soft case included.
