Sadowsky MetroLine 24-Fret Modern Bass - Satin Black

Sadowsky MetroLine basses are now made in Germany, thanks to a recent licensing agreement with Warwick/Framus—and they’re impressive. They’re the answer for bassists who want Sadowsky sound, feel and precision—without the long wait typically associated with Roger Sadowsky’s outstanding custom-made NYC instruments. Not cheap, but MetroLines basses save you almost half of the cost of a New York Sadowsky.

This 2023 MetroLine 4-string features a lightweight ash body. Two Sadowsky passive soapbar pickups (modern position) are routed through the famous Sadowsky preamp. The maple neck features a matte finish and maple fingerboard with 24 nickel/silver frets. The feel is arguably perfect.

Bottomline: Expect the same craftsmanship and quality as a NY Sadowsky at a more affordable price.
