    Incredible = Drozd

    Kind of redundant, isn't it? ;)

    It's impossible to not think the word "Incredible" when looking at (or playing) any of Jerzy's basses :bassist:

    Man, he builds some beautiful stuff ........ :cool:

    that's prolly someones custom order, I never saw that inlay before.
    The one I played had a "nature" inlay, one of jerzy's own designs, I could stare at that fingerboard for hours...

    Those really high end Drozd's are a little over the top to me... a little too much like furniture. I greatly prefer the rather simple and elegant Excellency and Mastery models that Dan Lenard has in stock at LAG.... the more simple woods and lack of inlays and multiple laminations work much better with the interesting curves and shape of those basses. Just my 2 cents.

    Amazing looking Drozd, those are some really sweet basses. The only thing that bugs me about that is why someone wouldnt have wood pick up covers with all those other options. I guess If I buy it I could have some made ;)

    I believe all the new Drozd's have wood pickup covers... the older ones do not. The new pickups sound amazing... split coil.. very organic and single coil sounding.. and beautiful... they are kind of 'wavey' shaped.... really beautiful.

    I've seen some newer ones on LAG and other places with plastic covers.. maybe they are new old stock or he doesn't cover other peoples pick ups? Not sure

    I talked with dan and jerzy at namm about this exact thing.
    I have a sig 5 and it has barts in it. actually the sig 5 from the old catalog. I was inquiring about swapping them out for the new pups. I didnt know if he could do because of the shape. but it was affirmed that it can be done and will be done. he also recommended to switch out the bart pre for and aggie which incedentially I have coming out of another bass I am swapping pres from so I guess I am in luck!

    All his models have the JDX pickups, even the basic has wooden covers and dig in knobs.

    My friend who bought one was fortunate to get a Basic with an OBP-3 as an upgrade, it is capable of amazingly clear tones, definitly piano-like (no wonder my friend like it since he's a big fan of tap bass)

    I agree. Impressive bass, but too much for me.

    It just depends on what pickups he uses in a particular bass. I know that Barts can't be done with wood covers, because the magnets/coils can't be taken out of the plastic housing.
