I find occasional mention of Juzek basses here. To my current understanding, I am hearing that they are factory made basses and can apply to quite a variety of basses from Germany. Maybe kind of a generic name? I have a 5/8 Juzek bass as a back up and keep going back and forth on selling it. The guy I bought it from just called it a German bass; the guys at Lemur Music identified it as a Juzek. Its a good little jazz bass, but kind of beat up and needs some work. If it weren't so beat up, I would keep it. On another issue, everyone I've talked so says to not mess with the finish, etc. as it will hurt the tone. I've heard some top players play Juzeks. What do you know about and think about Juzeks?
