    Sadowsky Metro, it should be arriving within a month! :hyper: :bassist:

    So - could we stop all the Sad talk in the meantime? The waiting is killing me already, without all you guys praising them left right and center!

    Please?

    I mean seriously! It's a freaking Sadowsky! It's hard enough without me ordering one, but now that it's on its way I just can't stand it! They're just too good... Thanks.

    :bassist:

    OMG that's Sadowsky-tastic!!!

    I totally hope it's a super duper bass!!! I heard you wanted to buy a Marcus Miller jazz, but I'm glad you bought a Sadowsky instead. You will find that it's worth the money. Oh yes. Oh it will be. I can't wait for pics!

    And I'll try to stop all the Sadowsky talk, even though I desperately want one myself. :spit:

    Spock's Beard rule.

    Am I using these emoticons right?

    So anyway, it finally arrived after a delay in delivery, and I was totally disappointed. Shallow, tinny sound. I traded it in for a Fender... and let me tell you as a man with 7 years experience as a session bassist... The Fender is just a better bass. Better tonal variety, better construction and and overall better feel. It's just a better instrument.

    All you guys -> save some money, buy a Fazz, get a better instrument. Ignore the Sadowsky hype.

    Oh and by the way: It was a Metro MV-5 in natural. I traded it for a Fender Jazz American Deluxe with Ash body and Maple fboard
     
  10. All we Fender players know why ;)

    I thought the construction in the Sadowsky was top notch, and the Fenders more variable. Only from what I read here of course.

    Apples and oranges really.
     
  13. :confused: Are you serious Dude? I've had 2 Sadosky NYCs and a Metro here at my place, a/b'd them with my fender classic 60's, and they were much better instruments all round... nothing tinny about them either. phat sound.

    Dang, sorry it (the Sadowsky) didn't work out for you... but in the end you got what you wanted, and that's what counts.
