    PRICE DROP - $2100 - Sadowsky RV5 MIJ MetroExpress


    I recently took this beauty on a trade deal, but I am not a 5 string player. It has the Dinky-shaped Sadowsky lightweight alder body, Pau Ferro fingerboard and maple neck in mint condition. Equipped with Sadowsky's original J-type pickups, outputs low noise and high quality sound. The combination of the original preamplifier and master tone allows you to use a clear high frequency like NYC Sadowski's, and of course covers a fat low frequency and a mellow sweet tone. It is also possible to bypass the treble / bass boost switch and preamplifier, helping to make a wide range of sounds. The bass has a new set of Sadowsky Blue Label Stainless Steel Rounds 45-130T. Bass is in mint condition with only light scratches on the pick guard and was born in the now famous Japan production facility on Aug 19, 2020. The instruments produced in this plant are highly sought after and I am told are the next best thing to an NYC model.

    It is a beauty, I just do not see me playing a 5'ver in the near future.
