Deposit on one Sadowsky Metro MV4 for Jan2005. I have a NYC PJ/4 in Inca Silver, Morado and chambered Alder. I'm thinking of putting flats on the PJ and string the MV4 with Sadowsky Nickels. I had a chance to play my friend's NYC Ash/Maple with a birdseye board over the weekend and was quite impressed with the focus/tightness and balance from this bass. I actually preferred the ash/maple over the PJ with roundwound nickles. I was intitally scared off the ash/maple combo in fear of too much brightness but man O man it sounded great to me. Since I don't need all the figured wood I might as well get a Metro. I'm adding a VTC, Sadowsky Nickel strings, Drop D-Tuner, Strap-Loks, and request an InCase instead of the usual case. I'm pumped.
