  1. I'm selling my 4-string Sadowsky RV4-HPJ P/J bass in '59 burst with an alder body. It's a gorgeous bass that is essentially in brand new condition.

    It's a great instrument. On my digital bathroom scale, me with bass minus me without bass gives a weight of 8.4 pounds. Although I don't think Sadowsky has ever released a bad bass, some Metro models are heavier than others. This one is light and nicely balanced.

    Comes with Sadowsky zipper case and all of the goodies that originally came with the bass and which are still unopened.

    I purchased this bass new from Sadowsky. In between ordering it and receiving it (a period of about four months) I developed repetitive strain injury in both wrists (in fact, I'm writing this ad while wearing wrist braces). When the bass arrived, I removed the protective tape on the pickguard and battery case, played it for about 30 minutes, and although I loved the sound, I was in pain. I played it once or twice more before realizing that it's going to be a long time before I can play pain-free again. I removed the battery to avoid leakage and corrosion, and stored the bass in its case ever since. It has about 2 hours playing time on it. There's some dust on the case, but the bass is in perfect condition in every way.

    $SOLD cash pickup in Hollywood, CA, or $SOLD PayPal shipped overnight to a confirmed PayPal address.

    No trade offers, please. I'm no longer playing the bass.

    Bump and GLWTS. Very sorry about your wrists. Wishing you the best.
  3. Thanks, buddy!

    Updated the listing with a shipping option. Although I'd prefer a local sale, I'm willing to ship.

    I assume this has the 1.5 Nut? Is the body solid or chambered & are you still at 2K on your price? GLWTS This bass looks fantastic!!!
  5. Yes, it has the 1.5" (Jazz width) nut. Solid body. Feel free to PM me an offer.

    Metros are not chambered, only NYC models

    bump for a beautiful instrument! a sadowsky p/j with a 1½" nut is one of my dream basses. would complement my metro will lee nicely! i played a used NYC p/j that looks almost identical to this one on saturday.

    my state refund, due to arrive on april 4, can't get here soon enough. (i bet this is gone b4 the end of the week!)

    I've been gassing for this type of bass for quite some time...traded my last "for sale" bass for a Metro Will Lee in the same '57 Burst

    If my check gets here before this is gone, I'm probably going to be very financially irresponsible (again) and pull the trigger on her

    And it would make a nice pair 😎
