    are there any sadowskys that aren't very pricey but still maintain the sadowsky quality?

    Their is the metro line that is not as expensive as the NYC line but they are in the 2 plus K range. Maybe you can find a used sadowsky at the right price.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    I've seen used Sadowsky Tokyos and Metros go for around $1500 used on occasion. They just had a black/maple neck Tokyo at Bass Northwest, but it sold very quickly. I don't come from the sort of folk that considers $1500 inexpensive, but it's less than half of the price of admission for a new NYC bass.

    In either case, the Metro and Tokyo lines are right up there with the NYC models in terms of overall quality. I own both NYC models and a Metro and I'm equally happy with all of them.

    A used Metro is an exceptional value, I doubt very much that you will find many new basses for the same money that are even close. In fact I doubt you'l find many used basses that are as good of a value as a new Metro!
