    Beautiful Sadowsky 5-string with see-thru red finish and beautiful grain. Before you ask, I have no idea why Roger Sadowsky signed the back of the headstock in 2015. It may have been a NAMM bass but the ones I've seen used for the show had NAMM on the headstock. Hum cancelling PU's, VTC, minor player wear & generic hardshell case. Analog scale says 8.5-9 lbs.

    $2,100 shipped east of Miss River, add $50 for west of Miss River. Selling to CONUS only.

    Attached are pics I took and some pics from The Low End.

    Is it a Sadowsky bridge? It seems very different from the standard Sadowsky that I'm used to.

    I really don't know for sure so I can't swear that it is. Looks like a Hipshot Type A, I think.

    Metros Are not available with black hardware which explains the bridge. Hardware was changed and it looks like quality stuff was used. It does look really nice.

    The sig is something that Roger does sometimes. My friend got a metro from Sam ash that they sent back to the shop before delivering it and Roger signed that one. I requested it on my recent metro.

    Great bass. Good luck with the sale.

    Is there damage on the bottom corner? Or is that a reflection?
