Vintage J-style Electric Bass
Black on Black? Alright! For those of us who'd rather have "more coffee" than cream or sugar is this stunning, ergonomic and versatile Metro from Sadowsky. Unlike their shrill six-stringed cohorts, bass players aren't so much looking for a particular tone as they are options. They want ALL the tones and they want them conveniently located for easy access. The bass player is an individual with an individual notion of what they want to hear and when. They have to be able to dip in and out of the shadows without missing a beat. This bass satisfies all the criterion and more.
Sadowsky Metro Basses
Our Metro Line represents all the basic models of Sadowsky NYC basses but are made by our staff at Sadowsky Tokyo.
The Metro Line offers most of the same features as their NYC siblings including the same pickups, preamp and bridge. The quality of the Metro Line is as high as our NYC instruments.Our Vintage Series Metro features a slightly undersized J body with pickup placement in '60s location. Rosewood boards are combined with alder bodies, and maple boards will have ash bodies.
