It does get a nice jazz tone and a snarly overdrive sound. The jazz tone is very complex - Much more so than a 335 and yet it manages to equal or exceed a 335 in snarlyness but it's very light and the neck is wonderful.You're killin' me Jack...I've always wanted a Sadowsky ever since I started taking my guitars to him for maintenance during the '90s (he's only working on his own instruments now though).
How does it compare to a 335? Can it get closer to a traditional jazz tone?
Haha, will do.Jack - youtube clips, pleeease. Preferably wearing the black beret.
I've gotten a surprising amount of negative flack about those hats. I gotta get a fedora though...sounds great Jack ... congrats and looking forward to the video.
Could you wear a cowboy hat with a Racoon tail init? Then the SRV fans might listen to it!
There's a pic of it on the sadowsky sight. I think it's really a hollowed out block that is only connecting the top to the back in several select places but leaves more hollow area. This seems to give the guitar more air to it than a 335 but it still has comparable sustain.I noticed from Sadowsky's site
" weight-reduced spruce center block" - what is that? Assume a thinner block to give some sustain but retain more "air" in the sound than an ES 335?
I notice Abecrombie is an endorser
... what a tasteful player .
.. but he's no John Meyer of course.
It’s here. It was delivered last night. I like it a lot so far. Nice weight, sounds great. It really does sit right between a 335 and an LP sonically. The Memphis tone circuit is pretty cool. Doesn’t completely eliminate the tone roll off when you back off of the volume but the decrease isn’t as large as most guitars. I really like the higher frets that are on it and the big neck for me is perfect (but I like big necks). It isn’t a HUGE neck but it is beefy. Needs a small bit of attention to the nut as there is still some pinging when the G, B and high E strings are adjusted but otherwise fit and finish look great. Frets are a little edgey where they are bound but not outrageously so. If I hadn’t owned a Grosh I probably wouldn’t really have noticed it, it’s just that Groshes fret work is unreal. The weight and feel are great and the 57 classics sound really good. Much more articulate than the hums that are in my Tokai 335. I may lower the pups slighty as the low E is very close to the screw in the pickup at the higher frets. Played it for a couple of hours last night.Thanks. Let me know how you like that. I've been very curious about those. None to be had in OHIO.
