Sadowsky MetroLine 21-Fret M/M Limited 2022
Limited edition 2022 model, only 150 pcs.
Roger Sadowsky established his reputation for outstanding restoration and repairs on guitar and basses almost 40 years ago. In the ’80s, when the price of vintage became out of reach, he started to build instruments from scratch for working musicians, incorporating all improvements he had developed over the years including experience from building acoustic guitars.
He also worked with legendary musicians like Will Lee, Marcus Miller, Verdine White (to name a few) to create unique instruments with a legendary sound heard on numerous recordings.
Roger Sadowsky is today one of the most respected instrument builders in the world. At the head of an experienced team, he continuously works on improvements and innovation to deliver the best instruments for his customers.
Making music with a Sadowsky instrument can only result in complete satisfaction.
The new German-made Sadowsky MetroLine is carefully crafted by Warwick on a licensing agreement with Sadowsky. Roger Sadowsky is fully involved and stands behind all decisions regarding design, branding, and most important quality.
We here at Bass Buddha see this as a great match – the genius of Roger Sadowsky in combination with the incredibly experienced Warwick factory where Production Manager Marcus Spangler tirelessly controls everything from crafting the bass guitars to purchasing woods with a ton of know-how under the belt. Over the years, Marcus has collected what is probably one of Europe’s largest amount of quality woods – now ready to be transformed into killer basses.
So, American and German engineering kind of rhymes with that excellent quality and supreme tone that we all love and know from Sadowsky.
