    Early Sadowsky Metro vintage 5 FS only! Ash body w blk gloss poly finish, maple neck and board, 21 frets, Sadowsky 2 band boost preamp w VTC, single coils, Dunlop Straplok ends, factory case. Weight is 9.25 lbs. This bass is a killer player and sounds awesome. It is not a museum piece. Very well played. Very small dings on the front and back of the body. Face of the headstock has wear, checking, and small scratching. Back of the neck has two good size worn areas through the nitro. Pick guard has a lot of swirling. Hardware is in great shape. Overall, awesome Metro.

    $1700 shipped. CONUS only. No trades.

    Sweet deal on a Sweet bass. If I was not in dire straights myself I would be all over this one. Convert to a tort guard and it would be awesome. GLWTS Bike.

    A free bump for ya!

    I've got the fraternal twin of this: same color, but with humcancelling pups. And this is a good price. If I didn't have a maple vintage 5, I'd buy it.
