    I'd love to see Sadowsky Guitars introduce a Metro with a P-pickup. Personally, I'd prefer a P-body with PJ pups, but would also be happy with a J-body instead (and PJ pups).

    Just curious if I'm alone here or if others share the same sentiment...

    From what I understand, a PJ 4 & 5 is in the works.
    But, why not order a Metro 5 and get a P pick-up from Roger and the boys and have it dropped in?!?!
    WahLah!!! Instant Metro PJ 5!!!!!

    Very cool to hear... would love to get some confirmation on this, and understand the timing. I thought about the route of modifying a Metro 5, but from what I understand from a previous thread from JRBrown (?), the location of the pickguard and control plate (at least on an NYC model, which should be the same as Metro) would require the P-pickup to be shifted slightly from where it would otherwise be placed (stated another way: it's easy to drop a J pickup into a PJ Sadowsky, but you can't drop a P pickup into a JJ Sadowsky, unless you move the P to a different location, closer towards the neck).

    Also... for a couple reasons, I'd prefer not to pick up a high-end bass and immediately modify it... better that the bass start out the way I'd like it to be to begin with. :D
     
  4. I read or heard this somewhere as well. I do not remember whether it came from the shop or not. I have decided to wait for a Metro PJ 5 before I pickup another Sadowsky!! BUT I WILL get one!! I personally don't mind if it is a PJ on a Jazz body but I do think that the PJ on a P body is mighty sexy as well.... :cool:

    Peace,

    I love my NYC P/J. The old school P sound just kills me every time I play - and I can get a more defined modern sound with a bit of blending of the bridge p/u for those situations where I need it.

    I've been thinking about getting a metro to add a Jazz to my bag, but also, just as a backup. A P/J metro would make my decision very difficult!!! I can't get both.

    I have decided. This board is dangerous. I must stop reading the bass board.

    Must focus on my playing. Must focus on my musicality. Must focus on my...


    mmmmmm, GAS!!!!
     
  6. I just need to play some to see if those basses are for me...
    After what i'll tell you if a P Body and pups would be cool!
     
  7. OHHHH MAN!!!!!!!!! A P/J metro, holy S$%T!!!! I have a 5 string Metro and it's my main bass, if they came out with a P/J 5 string Metro on a P body, I'd find a way to get it ASAP.

    I've got a NYC PJ5 that I really like a lot. It does something that none of my other basses do. Roger makes a great product and I'm sure he would do well with a Metro P or PJ.

    I'm about to sell my JJ Metro to pay for some dental work. :rolleyes:

    My hope was that there would be a metro PJ available by the time I got the money together for another 5 string. I'll definitely pick one up. :hyper:

    I'd like to see a Metro P-bass. My two favorite basses combined. P-bass and Sadowsky.

    I ordered my RV5 before the ultra vintage basses came out. What I really want is a rosewood/ash ultra vintage 5 with PJ pickups on a jazz body.

    I do love the RV5 with the JJ pups though.
