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 Modern basses of the MetroLine series made exclusively in Germany. All basses are lightweighted with approximately 8.9 lbs (4.0 kg). A good choice for bass players who are looking for a lightweight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound. Deep cut cutaways for better playability, 24 frets, soapbar pickups in modern position near bridge, active electronics with true bypass, Vintage Tone Control, treble and bass boost, ultralight Sadowsky tuners and the special Sadowsky bridge for quick string release meet all requirements of modern bass playing. The 5-string bass in sleek undersized J-Style shaped red alder body and modern appearance without a pickguard comes in ’59 Burst Transparent High Polish finish.
