A couple years ago I came across a carved 1/2 size Juzek which I acquired through trade. I ended up selling it to a young bass student who needed a small bass. He is ready to move-up to a 3/4 and has found a bass he would like to buy. His dad contacted me to see if I would be interested in buying back the 1/2 size (I had expressed interest previously). Well, if this really does come together I guess I will have a third DB. It has a lot of 'mojo' having been in a public school. It has the number '3' stenciled on the back. Years ago (40?) I played a no-name carved blockless wonder 1/2 size for several years. It actually sounded good, or as good as you could sound through a Barkus Berry pickup. This little Juzek, though it shows its age is a pretty decent sounding little bass if I remember correctly. The kid who bought it told his dad "None of the other basses at school sound like this one!" Anyhoo, I'm waiting for confirmation from the dad and hopefully will bring the little guy back home and keep him here this time. I already have two 1/2 size sets of Spiros - one medium and one weich. I guess there was a reason why I never stuck them onthe classifieds.
