    That finish is amazing. It looks textured and rippling, or something :AOK

    It's actually smooth but has large flake metallic in the color. That does give it a 3D effect. It sounds amazing as well.

    I love the looks of the '62's!
    First Fender I ever held was a '62 Precision; brand spanking new. It was about as big as I was....

    Best, Pete.

    I'm really trying to keep this one....seems like I get one built, and then it gets sold way too soon. So I"m planning on holding on to this one. Just finished up a quick mp3 too....

    That MK is killing. Tremendous figure. Hopefully some day I will be able to own a nice Alembic.

    That vintage P is great too - how close does you Sadowsky get you to your real deal?

    Thanks,

    Edward

    The Sadowsky Ultra Vintage P Bass has a snappier more modern sound to the '63 Fender even when bypassing the pre-amp. Construction is similar with a Brazilian 'board, alder body and maple neck. Also has a Lollar pick-up which is very nice. I'm guessing the difference is possibly down to the age of the wood and some design differences, such as the graphite re-inforced neck and more substantial bridge. I like both basses and typically run the '63 with flatwounds and the Sadowsky with roundwound strings as this takes advantage of the respective strengths of each bass. As for the Alembic, it is a really unique piece of Walnut they used which drew me to the bass in the first place. They are very versatile but very heavy also.
