Description & Specs

The revised Sadowsky MetroExpress basses are here!  These basses feature a Sadowsky branded headstock, upgraded hardware with the same string retainer found on the MetroLine basses and easy access backplate. The J-Style pickups are the same single-coils featured in the MetroLine Will Lee model and feature copper shielded control cavities.  Each Sadowsky MetroExpress now features a roasted maple neck as well!



Roger Sadowsky's goal was always to further improve an already very successful bass design by making a number of detailed improvements. Along with the electronics, which he developed by himself, he succeeded to raise the well-known P/J-bass sound to a new level, so today you can speak of a typical Sadowsky tone: Never harsh or shrill sounding, with strong, powerful but never muddy bass, with present, but not too aggressive mids, and a sweet and airy treble range. All features of this modern bass sound can also be found on the MetroExpress artist model of Verdine White, famous bass player of 'Earth, Wind & Fire', a band whose sound is significantly shaped by his powerful bass sound. This Verdine White Bass features a Solid Olympic White High Polish finish, a P/J pickup configuration, no pickguard and a fingerboard made of Morado – also known as Pau Ferro.
