ok here's the deal. i bought my sadowsky 4 string back in 1992. I love the bass and we've been through a lot together. the problem is that i've been playing my 5 String F-Bass about 99% of the time recently and haven't been playing my sadowsky. i'm just more comfortable playing a 5-string now. i'm thinking of possibly trading in my 4 string USA for a new Sadowsky Metro 5 string. i'll probably still have to kick in a few hundred bucks to do the trade. what do you guys think? i know that everyone has been really happy with their Metros, but i'm sure their resale values are not going to be as high as their USA brothers. basically, if i decide that i don't like the Metro, i'll be losing at least $500.00 figuring that a used Metro will be going for around $1500.
