A letter worth sharing....

May 30, 2011
Roger and Crew,
For the past five or so weeks I have had in my position a wonderfully crafted LS 17. The guitar is everything that I could have hoped for and more. The attention to detail is beyond anything that I have every owned in my 35 plus years of trying to play the instrument. I truly feel that I'm not worthy of having just a wonderful guitar at arms reach anytime I desire to play. The neck is as comfortable as my favorite pair of jeans.

A quick story: When I decided I had interest in one on your guitars, I called the New York shop to try to get more information about the LS 17. I called and a gentleman answered to phone, so I proceeded to go down my list of questions, (understand  I am from Indiana and have never had a Sadowsky Guitar in my hands) all my questions were answered in a fashion that a "hick" from Indiana could comprehend. As the conversation carried on, I wondered, just who was on the other end of the phone? With the expertise that my question were being answered, I asked," Is this Roger that I'm talking to?" The answer was yes, and the order was placed, believe me I had no intention of ordering a guitar that day, but I'm so happy that I did. It is uncommon in this day and age business can still be done of such a personal level.

  1. Yep, that's how Roger rolls :-)

    I showed up at his Manhattan shop on a day he was technically closed... I had taken the train up from Philly where I was visiting my Dad - I didn't realize he was closed Saturdays. He happened to be in, catching up on some work I presume. We had some coffee and some holiday tart that one of his guys brought in, and spec'd out a bass.

    That was on December 20th, 1997. That bass and I have been down a sh&tload of road over the last 14 years. It's appropriately scarred, beer-stained, and blood-stained and it's still my dream bass :-)

    I forget how much I paid. That's kinda the point :-)
