    For sale I have a Beautiful Sadowsky Metro 4 string.I just recently purchased. I might be overly picky or "stupid" on this but I am not digging the brightness of the Maple fretboard....I paid $1775 even though it was listed as $1750 because I wanted to meet the owner about half way on paypal fees...Most people re-list asking they don't want to make money and just get what they paid....well for me I will list it $75 less than what I paid!!!
    Asking $1700 shipped CONUS!!!...will be hard pressed to find a baby like this for cheaper...:bassist::bassist::bassist:
    Here is the thread that the previous seller had....He is a much better picture taker than me...:bassist:

    I would at least Try it live with the band. Other than my Rick, I never got so many compliments on sound as with My Sadowsky.

    Jeff, I really believe nickels will make a tonal difference. If you feel crazy try some DR coated strings they add a neat little compression tone you might like. I have used black beauties but here the dragon skins sound good too. My goto nickels are daddarios....45-105

    +1 on trying nickel strings and experimenting with the VTC.
    Back when I could afford it, I had an RV-4 (still kick myself for selling it) and an MV-4 at the same time and with the same strings I was hard pressed to hear all that much difference in the tone. I usually don't go for maple fingerboards and others may have had different experiences, but if I ever get the chance to buy another Sadowsky I probably wouldn't hesitate to get a maple fingerboard model if it's one I like. They're easy to tame.

    That was my old bass. I never thought that it was too bright. The string on that bass (Sadowsky Blue SS) is less than a month old. May be that's why. I always used VTC to mellow out the tone. Sadowsky is very versatile and you can get just about any tone out of the bass.
