This Sadowsky has a huge sound, a traditional S-syle guitar with a humbucker in the bridge position. Wow! the combination of the humbucker and Roger's preamp/mid boost control makes this a fantastically versatile instrument. This guitar has all of the sweet crystalline S-style goodness you expect , but with the added dimension of a rock out bridge humbucker pickup.

CRAIG'S POV

This Sadowsky has a huge sound, a traditional S-syle guitar with a humbucker in the bridge position. Wow! the combination of the humbucker and Roger's preamp/mid boost control makes this a fantastically versatile instrument. Very few guitars can be crossovers between set neck designs and bolt on designs. This guitar has all of the sweet crystalline S-style goodness you expect , but with the added dimension of a rock out bridge humbucker pickup. Roger's stock and trade is making guitars that are total instruments, a guitar that pretty much can cut any situation. And this one here doesn't disappoint.

The finish is Sadowsky perfect, and the gold color is simply beautiful. A little flatter radius on this guitar's neck makes it a great choice for complex chords and ridiculously easy bends. I think the 12" radius in conjunction with a text book perfect fret job make for an impeccable playing instrument, ready to go where ever your music and your soul take you. With Sadowsky guitars, every detail is carefully thought out, and every design decision is ultimately made solely with the player in mind.

I have been working with Roger for so many years I've lost count, and I just can't say enough about his instruments. At CR Guitars, I am committed to carrying the work of the most passionate, most committed guitar builders that I know, and Roger has been on my list of favorites for as long as I have known him. This is another example of his stellar work, a very special guitar that will make a guitarist very happy. And that's my job, to make guitarists happy!

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT SADOWSKY GUITARS
Mention the name Roger Sadowsky to your average guitar player, and you'll likely elicit a "Roger Who?" But that name is spoken in almost reverent tones amongst working musicians. Sadowsky has built this reputation by giving the modern guitarist and bassist what he needs--a no-nonsense, versatile, and reliable electric guitar that performs great and sounds better. Of course, these are claims made by every guitar company in existence; but Sadowsky Guitars is one of the very few companies that can actually back it up. Sadowsky Guitars is based in Long Island City, in Queens New York where founder Roger Sadowsky built the business from the ground up in 1979, after 7 years of guitar luthier training. Today, the Sadowsky company has around 10 employees and caters to guitarists such as; Walter Becker, Jim Hall, Chuck Loeb, Russell Malone, Jimmy Bruno, and Lee Ritenour.
