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 J/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 24-Fret Vintagebasses of the MetroLine series made exclusively in Germany. All basses are light weight, approximately 8.4 pounds. A good choice for bass players who are looking for a light weight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound. Deep cut cutaways for better playability, 24 frets, J-Style pickups in modern position near bridge, active electronics with true bypass, Vintage Tone Control, treble and bass boost, ultralight Hipshot tuners and the special Sadowsky bridge for quick string release meet all requirements of modern bass playing. The 4-string bass in sleek undersized J-Style shaped swamp ash body comes in Solid Sage Green Metallic Satin finish.
