Sadowsky Guitars Announces Verdine White Signature Bass

Verdine White with Original Sadowsky Bass

Sadowsky Guitars has teamed up with Earth, Wind, & Fire bassist Verdine White to create a special signature model that will be part of their new NYC Satin Series. Based on White’s first Sadowsky bass from the ’90s, the instrument is set apart with an undersized J-style body of chambered alder, PJ pickups, and a J-bass width neck. It’s more than a signature model for the bassist, though.

“The Verdine White Signature Bass is a tribute to Verdine’s late brother, Maurice White, and a portion of the proceeds from each bass will be donated to the non-profit Verdine White Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles, California,” Sadowsky writes. “The Center’s purpose is to assist musically talented students living in underserved communities. The Center provides scholarships, music lessons, and instruments. Sadowsky Guitars will donate two basses to the Performing Arts Center. We are very proud to support Verdine and his Performing Arts Center with this collaboration.”

The Sadowsky Guitars Verdine White Signature Bass will be debuting at the Winter NAMM show. It will be available exclusively through the company with a price point of $2,995.
