I read a lot of posts about Sadowsky on this, and other forums, and they generally receive a high degree of praise. Well, I was at my shop yesterday and played two of them. One was a Metro Series Jazz bass and the other was the modern version. I don't know the story behind this company but for the price, I don't understand. There are many basses out there that play and feel way better to me for less than half the price. What's up with that?
