    Although it would be too complicated to have a poll that listed EVERY possible Metro available, I tried to pair things down to a handful of choices that cover all the "basses"....

    For those of you thinking about buying one (or several...Nino! :D ) of the new Sadowsky Metro line basses, which one would you pick for yourself?

    I've always been partial to the 24 fret 5's.
  7. I'm thinking more of a 4 string vintage, ash/ maple... in sunburst, of course!!! :bassist:

    None! :D

    I would want a Standard 4 with Ash body & Rosewood Fingerboard.
    But since that isn't an option................

    If & when it becomes availablr a 24 fret 4 string bass in alder body/rosewood board probably in black or Lake Placid Blue and/or :smug: the same bass in ash body/maple in natural or trans blue.
  11. 4 String Vintage - alder/rosewood- Color ?


    Somehow I think you knew that already.

    Just two ? That's it ? :confused: ;)

    Right on! :smug:

    ...and if it's not a '59 burst, then it'll have to be lake placid blue or candy apple red.
  13. I really can't decide which one 24 fret model I want. Initially it was the Ash/Maple 5, but I'd probobly want any of the 4 or 5 24 fret models. Does anyone know what the actual weight of a 5 string will be? I'll probobly mak my decision bases on weight. Also, can you get the passive tone and stacked bass/treble on the Metro's?

    5 string Vintage Ash/Maple for me. Does anyone know what the actual price of these will be? (not list or MSRP)

    Prices will range from $1,795 to $2,300 and list price is THE price....just like Roger's pricing policy for his NYC basses. If you have a specific question about the price of a particular bass, shoot me a PM. I'd be happy to help out. :)

    Ah, so they will pretty much only be going through Roger? I didn't see that part.

    Nope....the Metro line will be sold through authorized Sadowsky dealers. Although the basses will be sold through a dealer network, the pricing policy is that list price is the price. That way, you know exactly what the instrument costs, you don't have to waste time price shopping and haggling, and dealers can compete based on SERVICE, not price. :)
