    Hi folks,

    Here's a pic of an Ultra Vintage 70 I found on a dealer's website.
    IMO, that's actually the sweetest metro I've ever seen in pic.
    Tasty combination of ash body, rosewood fingerboard, white block inlays and black pickguard...
    Just thought you'd like to share

    Put a Tort Pickguard on it ...and put it in my house and it would be PERFECT! lol ..Seriously, Those are Sweet basses. I'm guessing they are going to be a huge success for Roger. I am a sucker for Block Inlays and the more traditional Jazz shaped body. If only I could get one that is 9 lbs-ish or less in a 5 banger.

    I'm thinking a UV5'er with Black body, White pearlized Pickguard, Maple FB while MOP inlays would be a very Sweet Combination. - Gary

    That last maple necked Metro was sweet enough to make my day. I am gonna have to find a way to get a Sadowsky, Metro or NYC one day one way.
