You are looking at a Sadowsky MetroLine Will Lee MV5-WL 5-String Electric Bass Guitar Charcoal Foam, serial number M8761. This is the actual bass you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 0.4 oz.)

Renowned bassist Will Lee is widely recognized for his precise bass work on Letterman with the CBS Orchestra as well as his work with countless musical greats on the stage and in the studio. Through it all, Will Lee is seldom seen without his Sadowsky basses.

This Will Lee MV5-WL features a vintage-style ash body that wears a Charcoal Foam finish and a white pickguard. Finished in a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, the maple neck offers a smooth feel and exceptional comfort while the 22-fret maple 'board plays like a dream thanks to its superbly playable 12" radius.

Under the hood, the Will Lee MV5-WL comes loaded up with a pair of Sadowsky single-coil J pickups that sit in a classic '60s location. These pickups deliver that time-tested single-coil tone, punch, and power while the Sadowsky Will Lee Bass Preamp allows for superior tonal tailoring and exceptional sonic versatility. The Will Lee Bass Preamp still comes equipped with the same controls as the Sadowsky Standard Preamp--Master Vol, Pickup Pan, Vintage Tone with Bypass Switch, and stacked Treble & Bass boost controls--but the Will Lee preamp features an onboard Mid Boost for when you need a little extra midrange punch and power for solos. Rear trimpots allow you to adjust the mid boost gain and the overall preamp gain. The electronics also include onboard Frequency switches that are located on the back of the bass.

The Sadowsky Will Lee MV5-WL comes fitted with high-quality hardware including a Sadowsky 5-String bridge with quick release and a set of custom Gotoh/Sadowsky open-geared tuners. To round out this performance-ready package, Will Lee's signature graces the back of the headstock. Comes with the full protection of a semi-hard case.
