Roger Sadowsky's goal was always to further improve an already very successful bass design by making a number of detailed improvements. Along with the electronics, which he developed by himself, he succeeded to raise the well-known P/J bass sound to a new level, so today you can speak of a typical Sadowsky tone: Never harsh or shrill sounding, with strong, powerful but never muddy bass, with present, but not too aggressive mids, and a sweet and airy treble range. All features of this modern bass sound can also be found in the 21-Fret Hybrid P/J basses of the MetroExpress series. A good choice for bass players who are looking for a lightweight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound. This four-string version of the Sadowsky J/J Bass features a Black High Polish finish, a tortoise pickguard and a fingerboard made of Morado.
