  • Description

    Sporting a classic '59 Burst gloss finish, this Sadowsky MetroLine Vintage Series MV4 features a slightly undersized J-style body crafted from beautifully-grained swamp ash. The bolt-on maple neck is dressed in a smooth satin nitro lacquer finish and paired with a 21-fret 12"-radius maple 'board to offer a classic smooth feel, exceptional comfort and superb playability. An old-school-style spoke wheel adjustment at the end of the neck allows for easy, on-the-fly tweaking while adding to the MV4's vintage appeal.

    For that legendary, powerful tone and punch without the notorious single-coil hum, the MetroLine Vintage Series MV4 comes loaded up with a pair of Sadowsky hum-cancelling J pickups that have been set in a classic '60s location. Allowing you to shape your sound quickly and precisely, the Sadowsky Standard Bass Preamp consists of a Master Volume control, a Pickup Pan control, a Vintage Tone control with bypass switch, and stacked Treble and Bass boost controls.

    The MetroLine Vintage Series MV4 comes equipped with high-performance hardware including a set of Custom Gotoh/Sadowsky tuning machines, a Sadowsky 4-string bridge with quick release, and a micarta nut. Comes complete with a semi-hard Sadowsky case.
