    Hi,

    I´ve decided to get a new bass and im inclined to buy a Sadowsky Metro bass the thing is im used to a narrow neck (i curretnly play a Modulus quantum5) and i need a 5 string bass ... ive tried a MS5 and the neck was a bit wide for my hands i would love to get a P/J5 can anybody offer some info about the necks on 5vers on the metro series?


    Thank u, Groove on

    All Metro 5 strings are 1 7/8" at nut, with 19mm spacing at the bridge.

    If you want a narrower neck, try the Lakland line. The 5-string neck is just a bit narrower (1.8 vs. 1.875 inches) not a huge difference, but I can feel it. Anything less than the Lakland neck size just doesn't do it for me. I had an Ibanez GWB-1 and had to get rid of it because of the narrow string spacing - LOVED the tone, though!
