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 in the 21-Fret Vintage P/J basses of the MetroLine series made exclusively in Germany. The 5-string Vintage P/J Bass features a Solid Dark Lake Placid Blue Metallic High Polish finish, active electronics with true bypass, Vintage Tone Control, treble and bass boost, ultralight Sadowsky tuners and the special Sadowsky bridge for quick string release.

The sleek undersized J-Style red alder body without a pickguard and the fingerboard made of Morado - also known as Pau Ferro complete the picture. All basses are lightweight at approximately 8.9 lbs (4.0 kg). A good choice for bass players who are looking for a lightweight solution for the stage in addition to a modern bass sound.
