Roger Sadowsky has made it his business to improve an already very successful bass design even further by making a number of detail improvements. Together with the electronics he developed, he managed to raise the well-known P / J bass sound to a new level, so that today one can speak of a typical Sadowsky tone: never sounding harsh, with deep, defined, by no means muffled bass, present but not intrusive mids as well as sweet and airy highs. All the features of this modern bass sound can also be found in the 21-Fret Hybrid P / J basses of the MetroLine series, which are manufactured exclusively in Germany. Special features of the P / J hybrid basses of this series are the active electronics with true bypass of the preamp with vintage tone control, treble and bass boost, the ultra-light hipshot tuning machines and the special Sadowsky bridge, which enables a quick string change. The five-string bass with a classic P-style body made of alder comes in a high-gloss Vintage Burst Transparent High Polish finish.

The construction and quality of these German built Sadowskys, is of the highest standard which is what makes the Sadowsky Metros world class and Roger Sadowsky wouldn’t have it any other way.

As a Modern Super Precision / Jazz bass , best of 2 classic instruments in the one package.., it doesn’t get more versatile than that. Plenty of punch, cut and snap, you’ll never be lost in the mix with a Sadowsky.
