Hey all 

 

I picked this lovely bass up from @jay-syncro of this parish to compare against my Celinder. As wonderful as it is, the Celinder and I have a long history together, and I don't need two basses that do the same sound, so....it's up for sale. 

 

These recently discontinued instruments (spec and website can be seen at https://www.sadowsky.com/sadowsky-instruments/metroexpress/ ) are meticulously built and were made in Japan in small numbers before Warwick became a licensee for  Sadowsky. Reviews are excellent - Premier Guitar (https://www.premierguitar.com/sadowsky-metroexpress-review) and Bass Player (https://www.sadowsky.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/BP_MetroExpress_Review_6_2018.pdf) both thought very highly of them,  

 

This model should definitely not be confused with the new Chinese-made RSD/Warwick Metro Express basses which are made in China to a very different price point. It is a much more expensive instrument with better woods, preamp with VTC, Sadowsky humbuckers (not the Chinese single coils), and of course overall fit/finish. The control cavity is the tidiest and best example of star grounding I have ever seen; meticulous.  

 

It has a lightweight ash body, maple fingerboard, and smooth nitro-finished maple neck. The finish is a lovely metallic Sage Green; difficult to photograph but hopefully I have captured the shades of it here.

 

The weight is a very easy on the shoulder 7lb 13oz or 3.54kg. 

 

It's in excellent condition and has one small ding on the forearm contour, I have photographed this carefully. Frets have almost no wear, neck is straight, truss rod works normally, and it tolerates a low setup.

 

It comes with the Sadowsky Portabag, warranty cards, and tools. 

 

It's a pro Sadowsky instrument for a great price. £1450 shipped in the UK
