Ever since I came in contact with a Sadowsky last year I have wanted to own one. (Some of you may remember that bass.) Somehow the funds became available and a Metro RV5 was delivered to me yesterday from Atlanta Bass Gallery. My mini review - 1st off the bass is stunning visually. It kind of took my breath away when I opened the case. The neck is very comfortable to me and the string spacing feels great. The bass is nice and light. The set up out of the box was very low with very little relief. I actually had to raise the B and E a bit to accommodate my playing style. I played with the band for a few hours last night and it never felt heavy to me. The voice of the bass is excellent. I set my amp flat and just made some minor adjustments from song to song with the onboard preamp (which is also impressive). The bass sat well in the mix and they guys I play with all had great things to say. Seriously digging this bass!
