Sadowsky Metro Basses

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.

Prices range from $2350 to $3100 and are available direct and also from our network of selected Sadowsky Dealers.

New orders require a deposit of $500 and build time is 4-5 months.
