I had a NYC bass shipped to me and it was fantastic.  Played well and looked like a dream.  But it was pretty neck heavy.  So I sent it back and got a Metro RV4.  Just under 9 lbs.  It is the best bass I've ever owned.  Awesome tone & sustain.  Cuts through nicely when I gig.  Other musicians who have picked it up are blown away by it too.

My feeling -- you can't go wrong with any Sadowsky.  They are all great.  Get a NYC if you want low weight and/or special options and finishes.  Otherwise a Metro will do ya just fine.

What are the actual headstock thickness measurements on the NYC and Metro basses?

My 1998 NYC measures 9/16".
That lands right between the 1/2" on my Fender American Vintage '75 Reissue, and 5/8" on my Lakland Skyline Joe Osborn.

I found the answer to my own question on the Sadowsky NYC - Metro comparison page.

NYC is 23/32" and Metro is 11/16"
