    Metros have polyester on the body and flat nitro on the neck...just like NYC basses!

    Hi Everyone.....just caught up on about 10 pages of posts here! Thank you all for your kind words and I especially appreciate the great comments on our redesigned flat wound strings. I love the community we have both here and on the Sadowsky Bass Owners page on Facebook!

    FYI—There was a similar question posed awhile back, with responding pics of some awesome Sadowsky P and PJ’s, beginning around thread page 2255...

    Yes after researching I found they are a great Store with a a great rep. The bass wa shipped and arrived into NYC on the 6th but it’s been there since. So I’m chomping at the bit to get that notification that it’s on it’s way to me.

  9. Just finished by dinner gig tonight. I am actually starting to get use to fellow musicians and bass players coming up and complimenting on my sound and playing. I'm an ok player. My Sadowsky just brings out the best in me. Thank you Roger.

    Is anyone else rocking a Vintage 24fret 5 string? I haven't seen many here. That's my current build in the shop.

    Are you kidding me? At work, I'm known as Major Futzer, and my cohort in perceived diligence is Lieutenant Doolittle...

    ... our motto is why do something now, when you can wait until your day off for someone else to handle the matter?

    If I had known that using the term "futz" in a description of flatwound strings would create three pages of chatter.... I would have used it along time ago!

    I'd copyright the name, Flatwound Futzers, for a potential future band name.

    I didn't buy them from Sadowsky because I wanted to experiment with aging them and was afraid I would ruin them. The tolerances this company uses is not up to spec with Sadowsky tolerences. They were cheap but you get what you pay for. In fact the one on the J makes me mad every time I look at it because it doesn't fit the control plate perfectly. So if you like things to fit perfectly buy from Sadowsky. They came as "aged pearloid" but I scuffed them by going up and down only with a piece of 0000 steel wool, threw them in a metal sheet pan, poured a pot of coffee on them with a half of a container of turmeric. Let them set for 24 hrs and they came out great. The one on the P was darker so I soaked the one on the J a day longer and it got a little more yellowed than the one on the P but I am happy with the color and it looks great onstage. My only regret is that I should have spent the extra cash to buy them from Sadowsky because the less than perfect fit drives me crazy.

    Hey Roger, have you guys ever thought about a 35” scale 4 string. I’m now playing in a country band and finding I could use a low B but happily give up the G!
