notice i didnt say "vs." ! my USACG bass is wonderful, but it is heavy. I may have to move it. So I am looking at Sadowsky again for a Jazz 5 - i spoke to Roger and he tells me there is a natural/maple metro in stock- also, he just took in a pre-owned Tokyo in natural ( with inlays and binding! ) and he needs to figure out the price. things to consider are- i love block inlays and binding the Tokyo has a boost and cut treble which will eliminate a need for a passive tone control i believe the Tokyo is full size ( a good thing) the Tokyo is heavier that the Metro ( a not so good thing, my back hates it, but heavier Ash sounds better to me) so.... lets hear from Tokyo owners and NYC and Metro owners... which is the smart move for me?
