    What's going on?
    Check out www.luthiersaccessgroup.com
    He is the only U.S. Aurthorized Distributer for Jerzy.

    They are great basses!!!!

    I have never seen any around N.Y. (New or Used)

    There was one on E-bay (4 string) but the guy selling was asking as much as a new one.

    I own one, a 6-string Mastery. By-Tor also owns one. I don't know if anyone else around here does, though. Here's a link to when I first got it, which includes some pix.

    It's one of the nicest basses I've played, ever! Through Luthiers Access Group, and also a local retailer who had one for a while (and might still), I've played over a dozen Jerzys, ranging from the Basic to the Limited Edition models. In short, they're incredibly consistent, the workmanship is unbeatable, and the tone is amazing!

    He's one of the most honest and straight up guys in the business I have ever met...... well including my self :D


    But back to the subject, Dan is probably the only that can really help you with the Jerzy Drozd. I've played one or two and thought they were nice basses.

    Good luck,

    I played a 5 string for about 10 minutes at the Michigan Guitar Show. Luthiers Access Group brought about 4 or 5 of them to the show. Very easy to play. Fast neck. Fairly light (but then my basses weigh from 9 to 13 plus pounds). I could easily fall in love with one.

    Pronounciation: Jerzy = either YAIR-zy or AIR-zy, Drozd rhymes with "Closed".

    Peace,

    James
