I decided to stick with Blue Label Steels on my M5-24.  I figure, that is the sound that captured my attention, so I'll stick with them for the foreseeable future.

Here's a quote from the Sadowsky website:
"Our Metro Line represents all the basic models of Sadowsky NYC basses but are made by our staff at Sadowsky Tokyo.

The Metro Line offers most of the same features as their NYC siblings including the same pickups, preamp and bridge. The quality of the Metro Line is as high as our NYC instruments."


That quote is the key factor that let me opt for a Metro over an NYC.  If they started to offer the Metro line with fretless as an option, I doubt that I would ever buy an NYC.  I'm not interested in fancy tops, I'm fine with chrome hardware, and my previous bass weighed over 10 pounds.  For my needs, the Metro fits the bill.  I have owned my first one for just under a month now, and I already want another one.  First one is an M5-24, and I'm tempted to order a V5-24 in Rosewood/Alder.

I installed Schaller's on my Metro.  I had ordered a set of Dunlops, but I decided since I've been playing Schaller's for eight years-I'd stick with them.

To solve the issue of having the nut loosen, I used a dab of nail polish.  I have yet to have any issues since using this method.
