on my metro will lee i seem to have buzzing on the E & A strings only. it seems to be mostly when they're played open. is it something i'm doing or is it the bass? i've only had it for a few months so the strings and setup is the way it shipped from sadowsky nyc Huh

Perhaps your neck is adjusting to the weather changes with Winter coming. 

If you're inexperienced with adjusting things, I'd contact Sadowsky guitars or find a reputable local professional to do a setup for you.

I do all my own.

I'm also venturing to guess you're just needing a slight truss rod tweak.

If you get buzz on open strings and on the first few frets you should probably loosen the truss rod a bit to make the neck straight.
If it is straight and you only get buzz on open strings but NOT on the first & second frets the nut might be cut too low, which is highly unlikely.
A phone call to the shop is the best thing you can do, IMO.
