    Rare 24 Fret version Sadowsky MV5 and one of the very last Japanese made Metro instruments. It features a more streamlined J-body with deeper cutaways for upper access; same renowned Sadowsky tone. Take a look at that weight, that’s NYC shop territory! This one is definitely going to make someone really happy! Freshly cleaned and restrung with a new set of Dunlop SS Super Bright strings before taking these photos. Original Sadowsky Blue Label SS (w/ plenty of life) will also be included. Condition remains as new.
