I used to own a 2002 or so Sadowsky, and I remember it had the serial number stamped (like pressed in) in the back of the headstock. Now I have seen a newer one (2003, I'm guessing) that has the serial number in a decal (under the clear coat, of course), also in the back of the headstock, but with smaller letters. The basses in question are not Metros; these are NYC with serial numbers in the 3000s. . . Does anybody know when the change happened and why? Thanks.
