    Hi!

    Was in the city a week ago Monday. Thought I'd stop by and see my favorite people at the Sadowsky shop. Wanted to have my NYC 5 looked at and pick up a new Incase.

    Well, I left with a new Metro!! The minute I picked it up, I knew I had to have it. 8.35lbs, trans blue, beautiful ash body, smokin' neck, thin profile, awesome fit and finish. Stacks up right against my NYC 5 and 4. Love the maple board. Gives the bass a nice snap I'm not used to with the Morado board on my other 4.

    I had NAMM Metro #2. It was awesome, too. I like this one better. I prefer a non-vintage look(i own 5 Vintage Fenders) and love the color blue!! It's also a pound lighter than the NAMM bass which is great being a gig 150 shows a year!

    I played it 6 nights in a row and it smoked. Quiet, thumpy, just like one of my NYC's.

    Here are a couple pics.

    Guys and gals, dont hesitate. If you're a working player, you can't beat the Sadowsky's. They are wonderful and sit in the mix like no other!

    Hi!

    Got bigger pics but the forum says I can't post them. I've got an email in to them to figure out why

    Would you mind e-mailing them to me? The reason I ask is because I'm thinking about a trans blue with a black pick guard and I'd like to know how deep the blue is and I'd also like to see the swap ash on the metros. Thanks! ZurForever@hotmail.com.

    Hi!

    Major, Hi! Didnt do the VTC. I own 3 now and have had 9 others and none have had it. I've tried one at the shop. I need to gig with it to see if it would do me justice. Hope you all like the pics.

    Rob

    BTW, after two weeks of gigs, totally smokin' purchase

    Sadowsky rules!
