    CLOSING THE THREAD. NOW is apparently not the right time.

    The feeling thread is done and now the "for sale" / "for trade" thread has begun.

    The bass is basically new and I’ve only had the privilege of playing it about a dozen times since I’ve had it. I bought the bass new just a few months ago and it is by far, the nicest bass I’ve ever owned. So nice in fact, that it is making me nuts not being used. I play both bass and guitar and it seems that in the last several months it’s been a lot more guitar work so sadly, the bass sits untouched.

    I really love the bass but it is simply too much for my needs now so, I'm either going to sell it outright or, trade down to something more cost effective plus cash.

    I'm looking for $3,950 for the bass or a trade and cash deal. I'm looking at the following basses:

    Lakland
    Lull
    Dingwall
    Stambaugh
    Pavel
    MTD
    Benavente
    Aquilina
    Pedulla

    Here is the original info from LAG when I bought the bass last year:

    Jerzy Drozd Excellency V
    Here is one of the basses we recently received from Jerzy.
    His most popular model, the Excellency is a deep-set bolt-on design bass that
    combines the sustain of a neck-thru and the snap of a bolt-on.

    Said it before, and I'll say it again... :)

    Folks, Jerzy's basses are really something. I just recently acquired my second one, and it's just as nuts as the first. The body sculpting makes them hug you far better than any typical back body contour "belly cut" ever could, they play completely effortlessly, the D and G strings don't "fade away" on you, and the B string is something to behold.

    Another thing worth noting... even thought the OBP-3 is stock, the pickups were specifically designed to pair with that preamp. I've used OBP-3 preamps before and they're good preamps, but it's never been as good as with a Jerzy.

    PM's/offers replied to. Regarding 6 string bass offers, sorry but it's one too many strings for me. Thanks for the offers though. There's been some really sharp basses on the table.
