    I am selling my Sadowsky Metro MS5 5-string bass. This bass in excellent minus condition. It has a natural finish and maple fingerboard, and comes with the rectangular Sadowsky ultralight case. It has a J/J pickup setup. Some of the pickup magnets have darkened over the years, but this doesn't affect the sound. There is also some wear on the treble side of the neck. Nothing that you can feel; it just looks like the previous owner really played the bass a lot! I looked for a light one and found it with this one. It weighs 8.8 lbs. Selling for $1700.

    Looking for a local sale (MD). I am not interested in shipping this at this time. I will be glad to send pics if you are interested. Thanks for looking!

    PS: Please see posts below for links to pics.

    It's a lightweight Sadowsky Metro 5 string with a maple board. Is it a Modern, P/J, J/J, Will Lee, UV? What year? What condition? What case?

    It's a beauty! Here's how to make the pics show up here: around each of those links, put <img> and </img> but with square brackets [ ] instead of angles. (if I wrote it out with the square brackets you wouldn't see it.)

    So like <img>https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ilxtt0v6h5xk99/Photo%20Oct%2012%2C%203%2037%2020%20PM.jpg</img> but with square brackets gets:

    Edit: aggh, looks like dropbox won't hotlink. Sorry about that. It's a great looking bass, good luck!

    Bump for a nice Sadowsky looking for a new home! Please remember that I am looking for a relatively local sale (MD area). I prefer to buy/sell/trade in person.

    Not really looking for trades...unless maybe the headstock says Alembic!

    Will this bass get sold if I mention that the neck has a "slick, fast feel"? Surely someone wants a great Sadowsky for little money! Send me a PM Maryland area TBers!

    This Metro was made in 2005. I'll update on the pickups in a bit.

    I believe the pickups are humcancelling. I just plugged it in, soloed each pickup, and I couldn't hear any single coil noise.
