Manufacturer's Description

Sadowsky MetroExpress 21-Fret Vintage J/J Bass, Tigerstripe Ebony Fingerboard, Fretless, 4-String - Solid Black 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 max. 9.5 lbs (4.3 kg). A good choice for bass players who are looking for a lightweight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound. This fretless version of the Sadowsky Vintage J/J Bass features a Solid Black High Polish finish, a tortoise pickguard and a Tigerstripe Ebony fingerboard.
