After being a Sadowsky skeptic for quite a while and offending a few folks in the process,(my apologies) I went and ordered a MS4 Natural Ash/Maple. I decided that I want a High quality, Light weight, Punchy, Jazz bass. I have been unable to find a Fender style bass that fits my needs since I got rid of my Old, Modified fender years ago. After reading the testimonials of Sadowsky players and seeing the rabid following Rogers basses have on TB, I decided to Take the plunge and order a new Metro. The only thing I wish it had was the graphite reinforcement in the neck. I'm too cheap to spring for an NYC. The only other trouble is that the retailer I ordered it from took it's photo off their site so quickly that I can't drool over it until it comes. Wish me luck.
