    Hi,
    Just wondering if any word has been heard about Sadowsky releasing a 4/5 string P Bass Metro anytime soon? I seem to recall some talk awhile ago, but nothing solid...
    Maybe Im just dreaming but I seriously recall hearing this.

    Thanks for any Info

    Roger Sadowksy is often seen on the boards, but he doesn't necessarily read everything. I'm sure if you would e-mail him and ask him, he would be more than happy to divulge any information he deems fit to share. (Unless he replies to this thread. ;))

    Was some talk a week or two ago about it. He said way back when that there would be something with Precision pickups. He was unclear about the body style or neck shape though.

    I thought about emailing but Im just "kicking the tires" at this point... I am sincerely interested though it would be a perfect compliment for my RV4 ...

    So there was some talk about this... I figured I heard it here ...
    Rereading that link now ... thanks "PinkTelephone"

    BTW: I am hoping for a P bass Body, not a J.... although a P/J combo metro would certainly be tempting as well

  5. yea same, i was really hoping for just a straight up P bass

    i'm not a big fan of Jazz basses, any part or them.
     
  6. I would definitely like to see a Metro P! That would be very cool.

    +1 ideally the P would be an option on all the models (so I could get a UV75 with rosewood).

    2 Pretty standard things (that I dont think would take away from his NYC line) that I would like to see in a new model Metro.

    1. P Bass (P/J on top of the P bass option Im not holding my breath on)
    2. Fretless

    It seems that there's quite a demand for a Metro P or P/J with either a Jazz-style or P-style body. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Sadowsky unveils a few Metro P/J models in the future.
     
  14. If I could afford it, a P/J Metro would sure be nice.

    What are the prices on the Metros compared to the prices of his NYC stuff? I've never really looked that far into Sadowsky's stuff.
