Sadowsky Metro Express P/J-Style 5 Tobacco Burst

Back to List


Sadowsky (Roger Sadowsky Design) Metro Express PJ5 - Tobacco Burst

Sadowsky’s new Metro Express line offers players classic Sadowsky tone and workmanship at an affordable price. These Roger Sadowsky-designed basses are made in China.

Bodies are made of lightweight Okume (a tonewood Sadowky has used for years); necks are maple with Morado or Maple fingerboards. Single- and split-coilcoil pickups are routed through Sadowsky’s 2-band preamp with Bass and Treble boost controls.

About the RSD logo: The Sadowsky trademark was pirated in China many years ago, so Roger is marketing the Metro Express line under the RSD (Roger Sadowsky Design) brand/logo. Design, components and attention to detail are all Sadowsky—but at a price accessible to more players. Gig bag is included.
