SADOWSKY - Beautiful Transparent White MV5 LIKE NEW!!

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by tommixx, Dec 4, 2005.


  1. Roger has done it again!! I got my eye on another NYC I am going to order first thing Monday :bassist: which means this one has gotta go! I have had this for about 45 days or maybe a little less but I have found another NYC I have to have. (Its the curse I tell you!). This one cost me right at $2300.00 from John at Bass Emporium (great guy to deal with) with shipping and will pass for brand new! Absolutely NO dings, scratches, scrapes or nicks at all. Plays like a dream and sounds great (played it through a DB750 and an NV610 tonight with a really hot band and it was better than sex!!) This one is the Transparent White and the wood has GREAT figuring beneath the paint. I can see why they choose the ones they do for the transparent finishes as this one is very sweet! WOW.... EDIT - The bass has has a perfect Tort guard AND it weighs just a bit over 8lbs!! Easily one of the lightest Metros I have seen posted on any of the sites when I was looking for it. I think I called just about everywhere and most were in the 9.5 to 10 lbs plus club!! Did I mention that it plays and sounds GREAT too!! :D

    The first $1,950.00 (seems to be the going rate for these) US Postal Money Order gets her shipped and insured to the lower 48. Sorry No Paypal and No trades. This is a great chance to save some decent scratch on a beautiful and sought after bass finish and get a GREAT Bass in the process. Sorry No Pics but I am working on it. This is in BRAND new shape so if you have seen a new Trans White MV5 with good grain figuring you have seen one like this!! PM me with any questions...Thanks for looking and God Bless!

    Peace,

Easily one of the lightest Metros I have seen posted on any of the sites when I was looking for it. I think I called just about everywhere and most were in the 9.5 to 10 lbs plus club!!

    Congrats, ric426 -- and thanks for saving me. I'm so pleased with the NYC Vintage 4 I got from Tom (the one in his avatar) that I was sorely tempted on this one, especially after he mentioned the weight.
     
  10. Thanks RunnDog...where is that review?? How did your sessions go???? LOL! Hard to put it down to write one I know! You reminded me that I am going to have to change the avatar when the new one gets here...I just hope I can get it!!! I need a PJ but I saw this one and it is calling me like the Gold one did! OH the agony....

    Both you guys got great basses and you probably think I am nuts for gettting rid of them.........YOU ARE RIGHT I AM!! LOL! It is a disease I think....

    Peace,
