    Beautiful mid-2000's Sadowsky RS5, 5-string bass. This is the Metro, made in Japan series. Perfectly set-up with stainless strings, and this thing is a monster! Has had the Vintage Tone Control (VTC) added for an extra bonus. The Sadowsky pre-amp is killer with the VTC and bass/treble boost, plus you can run completely (and transparently) in passive mode if that's your thing!

    9.4 lbs on the bathroom scale.

    Price is USD. Sorry, but no trades at this time.

    Whoa, this is a beaut! I'm next door in Kelowna, BC. I don't suppose you're one of the Calgarians that visit Kelowna often? Been looking for a pro jazz 5'er, this could be the one.... :)

    Hey there! Well, it just so happens that my in-laws are heading home from my place to west kelowna on Wednesday, if we could work something out before that time! It’s pretty soon but just throwing it out there...

    that's a nice bass, never seen a Metro with a 3 digit S/N.
