    I have 2 Sadowsky PJ5s, and I can't keep them both. Both are fantastic, so I'll let the free market decide. I've had the Metro for 2 years and just bought the NYC. My preference is to keep the NYC but we'll see how this goes.

    Sadowsky MV5-PJ Metro
    $2300 shipped (top of market but weight justifies)
    8lbs 7oz
    Mint and Tort (current) pickguards
    A little player wear but great condition (my main player since April 2015)
    M7593 from 2014
    New Dean Markley Blue Steel 45-125s

    Sadowsky NYC Ultra Vintage PJ5
    $3800 shipped
    Shoreline Gold over Alder
    Pau Ferro fingerboard
    8lbs 9oz
    Pearloid and Tort (current) pickguards
    Nitro professionally removed from back of neck
    Radius 12", Nut 1 & 7/8" (1.875")
    6679 from 2014

    Will ship either bass in an SKB hard case w/ TSA locks (key?)
    PayPal preferred, ConUS only
    Positively NO TRADES

    No, I cannot HEAR a difference. The difference is in cosmetics between these two.

    Free bump...

    I have a 2009 MV5-PJ that could be the twin to yours (well, if yours was 1 oz. heavier). Very versatile bass!

    If your Metro is the one that sells, it will make the next owner VERY happy, especially at that weight. (Then again, EITHER of those Sadowskys would make someone happy! )

    GLWTS!

    I know this gets said a lot, but if the Metro was Pao Ferro, I'd be very interested!
     
  9. Geez... the shoreline gold P/J is on my dream list.
