condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Sadowsky
model name / number: NYC T-Style

I have for your interest a 2017 custom ordered NYC T-Style Sadowsky guitar. I am the original owner. It is in immaculate condition.

This guitar has a pair of splittable humbuckers and it had the Sadowsky pre-amp electronics designed after Roger's Chuck Loeb model guitar. In other words, instead of having a third control knob on the top, designed to control the mid boost, it has two pots accessible on the back with which you can preset the mid boost and the gain to your liking so that you don't have to fiddle with knobs while you're playing. A flick of a mini toggle switch gets you there instantly.

Roger describes the controls this way:

Master Volume, Master Tone
Master coil cut on separate mini toggle
“Smooth Jazz” switch on push pull tone (up engages preset tone control, adjustable from rear)
Sadowsky mid boost preamp switch (total bypass, mid boost engaged, mid + gain engaged).
Mid boost gain pot and gain boost located on trim pots adjustable from rear

The guitar's finish is '59 Burst. It has a roasted neck for incredible stability. The hardware is all black. It has a 1-3/4" nut width and the neck's edges have been rounded so that it feels like a 1-11/16" nut width guitar when you play it. The list of features ends with locking tuners, ebony fretboard, master grade quilted top, and tremolo bridge.

It comes with its original Sadowsky Portabag which was my choice over the typical HSC because it is far more useful and just as protective. It is not a lesser cost option nor a greater cost option. They were an equal-choice option. The case is in very good condition.

I had dot markers added to the fretboard after the original purchase. It is a perfect job.

The guitar retains the stick-on invisible plastic pickguard that Roger puts on all of his guitars to prevent them from being scratched and that may show some minor pick mark signs but there are none on the guitar. There are no scratches, dings, or marks known to me.

A couple of more technical details:
Scale length = the standard Fender one of 25.5"
Fret size (according to Roger's website) = .094”wide x .051” high (though I can't confirm that)

My wife and I are retired and moving out of a house to a smaller living quarter and I have been selling off most of my guitars and banjos because, well, there just won't be room for all of them anymore. This one had to be cut.

A new guitar like this one ordered today would cost well over $6000.00. I am asking $4100.00.

I think I've covered everything but in case I missed anything, I'd be glad to answer any questions, so don't hesitate to ask. You may text me as well which would make communications far faster and more efficient. If you call first, I may not pick up if I don't recognize your number. But I will call back any VMs left. Also, remember to unblock your number if you text or call.

Thanks for looking.
