    Lots of things are arguable. Doesn't make them right.

    They're truly excellent, but I found myself playing my old ESP 400 Series more so I sold my one on.

    Roger makes a pretty good Fender clone.:bag:

    I kid.:p

    I like the fact that the Metro series sounds almost identical to the NYC basses but without as many pricy top choices. Great company to deal with too.

    "Knowledge", I see that you just joined today. You might want to do a search; debates like that have been going on for a while.

    ...or is this just a troll?

    Nobody doesn't like them. There's a Sadowsky Club thread here somewhere.

    They are Fender copies. And I think they outsource their woodwork and electronics. Nice basses though. But compared to an Alembic or Ken Smith.

    But we all have our opinion here.

    Sold my NYC. It was a great instrument in construction, feel and super light but not the right sound for me.

    Troll posts are hard to define but I have my suspicions on this one.

    I played a Sadowsky at a gig recently, I was very impressed. I am an American Standard Fender player (I play a Jazz bass), the Sadowsky was also a Jazz configuration. It was a very sweet bass and a little better than my Fender but not "night and day", good bass but I can't see myself dropping 3 large for one.

    Discuss for what purpose? For your mere amusement?

    I don't think so... :rollno:
