In on consignment is a genuine masterpiece from acclaimed guitar builder, Roger Sadowsky.

"I spent two years conceptualizing, designing, and prototyping my Broadway guitar models. Given my lifelong thesis that "The Wood Is My Foundation"... I designed two related models that embody my 44 years experience with guitarmaking and the relationship of wood and tone." - Roger Sadowsky

The Broadway by Roger Sadowsky presents a refined and elevated design in the realm of solid body electric guitars, offering a variety of tonewood options for the body, neck, and fretboard. The SS-13- a shorter scale variant- boasts an HH pickup configuration, stoptail design, and a performer friendly Mid Control + Boost preamp for jumping out in front of the band. This particular model showcases an exquisite redwood burl on spruce for the body and a roasted flame maple neck that feels positively superb in the palm of the hand. The controls follow the Layout 2 format, strategically placing the pickup selector switch in the most accessible position, with the remaining controls arranged behind the switch.

This pre-owned SS-13 is in superb condition, showing only minor signs of handling. Notably, there are two finish blemishes- a small line-crack near the neck pocket which is purely cosmetic and has been treated, along with a small ding about the size of a ladybug near the tailpiece, which has also received a finish repair.
