    I've played one. They are amazing basses. Nice mid growl to them, at least the one I played. I guess it's dependant upon the used woods. Are they worth 3k+? That's for you to decide, but they are great basses.

    yes they are worth that, but the bolt on models are over priced exepting the hollowbody that has a lot of work on it, iv seen some of those in jerzys workshop.

    Go to: www.luthiersaccessgroup.com

    Dan has them in stock.

    While they are not cheap by any means, they play and are built as well as Fodera and the other top makers products and this opinion is based on direct comparison in person.

    I was recently given a quote by Jerzy for a custom bass - very competitive when compared with other UK and European luthiers.
  10. I've checked them out on luthiers access and his own site. I'd like to hear some reviews from the TB'ers. Seem to get the best all around picture of a product on here. I'm completely consumed with how they look, but I was wondering how they played. A lot of people can build a pretty guitar and sell if for a lot of money. But not a lot of people can build one that plays like it's worth a lot of money.

    That's my review! :p

    Okay...so now I've owned it for about 1-1/2 years and have become far more comfortable on the 6-strings...I used to be exclusively a 4-string player.

    The neck profile is very thin, but for me that's a good thing...I welcome the change from my thick-neck Spector any day!

    It's very growly, even with 6-month old strings. It's versatile, in that I get a great P-bass like tone when soloing the neck pu and very jazz-like tone when soloing the bridge. It plays like butter, and has incredible harmonic content while maintaining a good amount of warmth. In fact, I haven't played another bass that had as much clarity and warmth at the same time! :D

    Because of the wood combination: wenge/bubinga neck, ebony fingerboard, walnut body, wenge toneplate, zebra wood top, it's very dark sounding. It's got so much character it's crazy! :hyper:

    I love this bass and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone contemplating a high-end instrument. :hyper:
