Sadowsky MetroExpress 21-Fret Vintage J/J 4-String Bass, Morado Fingerboard, Tobacco Burst Transparent High Polish
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-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 Vintage J/J basses of the MetroExpress series. All basses are lightweight with approximately 8.4 pounds. A good choice for bass players who are looking for a lightweight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound. This version of the Sadowsky Vintage J/J Bass features a Tobacco Burst Transparent High Polish finish, a parchment pickguard and a fingerboard made of Morado – also known as Pau Ferro.
