Summary: Roger Sadowsky's goal was always to further improve on an already very successful bass design by making several detailed improvements. This bass is never harsh or shrill sounding, with strong, powerful but never muddy bass, with present, but not too aggressive mids, and a sweet and airy treble range. This bass is lightweight at approximately 9 lbs., 11 oz. A good choice for bass players who are looking for a lightweight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound. Special features of the Ultra Vintage basses of this series are the active electronics with true bypass, vintage tone control, treble and bass boost, ultralight Sadowsky tuners and the special Sadowsky bridge for quick string release. This 5-string bass looks beautiful and plays and sounds great.
