Greetings, I'm happy to announce I just got and very nice Metro MV4 sunburst with VTC. It sounds and plays great and I love the highs and PHAT lows NICE!!! I've been playing a Lull modern vintage, sunburst, pao ferro board, 2 band bart with Fralin humcancelling PUPs. for about 4-5 yrs Also I have a Skyline Glaub passive 4 string Black / maple with Fralin vintage P for about 1 year. First of all they all sound great, play great, and are all made very good. In all honesty I see no real difference in the quality of any of the basses even though theres at least a $1000.00 spread. All three have great fret work, straight necks, great hardware and PUPs, and great electronics, all weight in around 8 to 9lbs or so, all good finishes and nice looking quality woods. The Lulls neck is a little chunkier than the Sadowsky both are still fast necks comfortable necks. The Glaub neck is a P bass copy so it's neck is wider as to be expected. The Glaub also is a plain black finish so it's easier to paint than a sunburst but I like the black look and its a perfect finish. My only complaint with this bass is a dead spot on the G or D I think? As far as value goes I'll rate them like this: Lakland #1 Obviously the lowest cost made in Korea, but finished with Chicago quality. I paid $600.00 used Mint. New $900.00 (passive) add $250.00 for retro-preamp Lull #2 Made in US by Mike Lull paid $1350 or so new 5 yrs ago todays street price $1700-1800 Sadowsky #3 Made by the Sadowsky team in Japan. Paid $1500 used 99% mint. Street price $2100.00 $2200 with VTC Summary: Its your call theyre all really fine basses in their own right with quality so close to each other it makes little difference if any actually exists.
