    FOR SALE: Sadowsky Metro RV5 (5-String) in MINT/EXC+++ condition. Serial # M494. Olympic White w/Tortoise Shell pickguard and rosewood fingerboard. Comes with Sadowsky Ultralight case.

    Purchased only 6 months ago. The bass is in exceptional condition and could easily pass as brand new. No scratches or dings anywhere on the body or neck…just some very light scratches on the pickguard which are hardly noticeable.

    The pictures are from the Sadowsky web site, and my bass looks exacty like this one. I will be glad to shoot & send pictures of my actual bass upon request (serious inquiries only, please).

    A brand new Sadowsky Metro RV5 sells for $2125...whether you buy from a dealer or directly from Sadowsky. I’m selling mine for $1875, and this includes ground shipping & insurance within the continental USA. (PLEASE NOTE: I will not ship outside of the continental USA.) Payment via a bank cashiers check or money order is preferred. PayPal is OK if you split the 3% transaction fee.

    FYI: I'm selling my Sadowsky Metro RV5 in order to buy another bass I came across, and therefore I'm not interested in any trades at this time.

    Please e-mail or send PM with questions or to request pics. Thanks!

    The rosewood-board Metros are all alder.

    mikezimmerman is correct...the body wood is alder. My bass does not have the VTC installed.

    Hey y'all...my Sadowsky Metro RV5 is no longer for sale. I decided that it's too nice of a bass to let go.
