Do you foresee the prices of used Sadowsky Metro basses dropping after the Metro Express release?

    Most metros on Reverb/TB Classifieds still fetch $1900-$2300 depending on the model. With incoming new basses at $1850, do you see the regular metro used prices dropping?

    I guess no too because owners of Metros and USA Sadowsky can argue that basses are more refined and have more features. I also do not believe the new budget will be produced in large enough numbers to negatively affect the value of existing used basses.

    I feel that it will affect the used prices for the mv and rv models. I don’t believe there will be much of a difference between the Metro and the express other than the colors available ... and the express may be lighter.

    Just my opinion

    I think it will affect resale of Metros for sure.

    If you can buy a new express for 1850. Why would you buy a used
    Heavier metro for 1900 or 2100 .
    I don't see how it won't affect the price of the metros .
