    I am the second owner of this fantastic bass in excellent condition. Only flaws are a tiny scratch above the control plate and light swirling near the neck heel. Both are very hard to find up close and invisible from a couple feet away. Price dropped to $1999 shipped to CONUS in the original Sadowsky hybrid case (rectangular lightweight hardcase, nylon fabric exterior).

    Alder body
    Rosewood fingerboard
    Sherwood Green with vintage white pearloid pickguard
    34" scale
    19mm string spacing at the bridge
    1 7/8" wide at the nut
    Sadowsky hum-canceling pickups
    Original preamp with VTC and 2 band boost only EQ
    9.8 lbs on the digital scale

    It really is. I have received many compliments at gigs, both tone and looks. It's a great color!

    One of the more spectacular Metros I've seen on here - and an equally spectacular cat photobomb!

    I believe the board is actually morado, correct?

    Being on the light in color side for rosewood,I suspect it may be. But the previous owner insisted it was rosewood and Sadowsky bills it as rosewood on their site. I will email the shop and see if they can clear it up for me.

    Heard back from the Sadowsky shop, they confirmed that it is rosewood.
