Since its inception in the early 2000’s, the Sadowsky MetroLine has been at the forefront of player choice. The MetroLine production was moved from Japan to Germany in 2020, and in turn the line has expanded to more models, finishes and configurations than ever before! With chambered bodies made of Swamp Ash or Red Alder and the signature Sadowsky Onboard Boost Only Preamp, you can experience the essence of a Sadowsky NYC with these professional workhorses.

Seven years after beginning his career in building, repairing, and upgrading instruments, a new repair shop is established by Roger Sadowsky in Manhattan, New York City.  With a clientele of most of the top NYC session and touring musicians, Roger began building his own electric basses in 1982. Roger soon became a well-known figure in the guitar and bass building community.

With increased demand for Sadowsky Basses in the US, Europe and Japan, Roger partnered with his distributor in Japan to produce a more affordable line of basses.  He trained Japanese builder Yoshi Kikuchi for 10 months so he could return to Japan and begin producing the all new Sadowsky MetroLine basses.

As Sadowsky basses grew in popularity, their natural demand in the international market also increased. In 2020, Sadowsky basses entered into a strategic partnership with Warwick basses. This partnership moved the MetroLine to Germany, and the MetroExpress to China. This allowed even more availability and options under the Sadowsky name, all under the supervision of Roger Sadowsky.
