Sadowsky Says…“Sadowsky MetroLine basses are produced by Roger (Sadowsky’s) personally trained protégé, Yoshi Kikuchi, in Tokyo, Japan. A superior craftsman in his own right, Yoshi moved to New York for a year to learn the art of the Sadowsky Bass at Roger’s side. Yoshi then assembled a small group of Japanese craftsmen and opened a studio in Japan under Roger’s supervision. As a result, Roger is able to deliver the legendary Sadowsky Bass more immediately and more affordably to you, the working bass player. With many competitively priced models to choose from, Roger takes the most popular features of his legendary NYC basses and makes them available to you immediately. Best of all, Roger personally stands behind each and every MetroLine bass with his exacting standards of quality, performance, integrity and service. We invite you to contact Roger to get the legendary Sadowsky Bass where it belongs today – in your hands.”
