    Can't stand the shape of the control cavity cover. Everything else looks good. How's the sound and feel?

    Adrian Maruszczyk has his company in Germany, they not only sell basses, but also guitars and Bass amps.
    The basses are made in Poland.

    I just got a 4 string 'Elwood' (JB) active/passive with Delano (German, handmade) PUs and NOLL pe-amp, rosewood fretboard.

    I am not a big fan of the neck finish (or maybe the bass is just 'too new' and I feel the neck ain't very fast.), but the sound is fantastic. Seriously amazing in both passive and active mode. I like the soudn on the Maruszczyk much more than my fender US and my lakland 5502 (the 5502 pre-amp is much more versatile though)

    The bass finish is next to perfect, it got a matching headstock, zero fret, no string retainer and a pretty heavy mass bridge. Love it.
    You can customize almost anything byt talking directly to Adrian Maruszczyk by email. He is very nice and helpfull.
    I recommend this brand to anybody, moreover you'll get a very unique instrument.

    I agree, they are amazing basses. I've got a Frog custom 6 string and it's absolutely fantastic.

    My bass also got Delano pickups, just like slyb5 but I've got a Glockengang EQ. Great sound, both passive and active. And the Frog model is an incredible bass to play, in my opinion.

    Love that P5 deluxe. (Jake). Nice pricepoint as well- problem is you never get a distributor in the US for european instruments- id pretty much have to
    Order one or go to Germany.

    They are really good looking basses. I might go with 32 scale white P-bass or the Mr. Tee model!

    Hi Hou,

    I own the 32" Jake Medium "P-Bass".
    Really a fine instrument!

    I tested the 34" Mr. Tee at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt two years ago.

    I have'nt had the time yet, but I will write Adrian a mail about a "Mr. Tee Triple" idea I have. One EA-Coil, but a lower and upper DG-Coil! Via the Tele-3-way you can chose if the lower (normal) or upper DG-coil is on.
    Haven't seen this before and maybe Adrian likes to make such a bass???

    Very cool. Is it passive? I really dig the Mr. Tee model. Would love have 32 scale hollowbody as well :)

    An update to this thread.
    I eventually just ordered my 3rd Maruszczyk bass!!

    I sold my old 2009 Elwood. I didn't like the neck much.
    Meanwhile I was really turned on by the newer elwood 'absolution' so... I ordered a custom one last year and it's my best 5 string ever, sound, playability and finish wise. It made me sale my lakland 5502 right away.
    I then went for a P-like (Jake) bass to use with my rock/cover band... way better than my old fender P (don't get me wrong, I love my precision and will never get rid of it! The Jake is just much more versatile, with a very similar sound): I get the classic sound in passive and a very modern/punchy sound in active mode.

    Today I am getting a custom elwood 4... as a replacement of my fender US jazz (would love to keep it but got some budget issues...ya know...)

    The maybe only negative aspect is that Maruszczyk basses ain't easy to sale on the second hand market, but they are very very fine instruments and they sound amazing (big plus for Delano PUs). oh and btw pics of the absolution here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/of...ad-part-17-a-895996/index31.html#post13551372

    Cool

    I'm still thinking about a MrTee model http://www.public-peace.de/index.php/bassesamps/mrtee

    Transwhite Ash body. 32 scale maple neck with matched headstock and no fingerboard dots. Tortoise pickguard and pick-up cover. Passive with jack on the side. Would be great :D

    The Elwoods look a lot like Sandbergs.
