    After the Legend X, the most beautiful fretless I've ever played, my new project with Jerzy Drozd is a fretted version of the Legend X! :D :hyper: :)

    For the body, we'll use Spanish flamed cedar:

    For the neck, American flamed maple & purpleheart:

    And for the top, this wonderful piece of American burl/spalted maple (number 121, here: http://www.jerzydrozdbasses.com/woodextravaganza.htm ):

    Very Nice.... I can't think of a better way to top that fretless than a matching fretted. I cannot wait to watch the progress through to hearing it recorded!

    Ah jeeze Yves! Don't do this to us! I'm still recovering from GAS over the fretless!!

  5. Very nice, Yves! Going to be another phenomenal instrument.

    You're blessed to have such amazing basses!
     
  6. Wow, that will make a perfect match to that jaw dropping fretless
     
  7. well, I think the big challenge will be telling Yves that the new Legend is actually a right handed bass built for me... I wish!!

    :p

    she looks beautiful, Yves. congratulations, my friend!

    someday I do hope to have a fretless Legend among my basses. Jerzy does such beautiful work!

    :D

    every other tuesday at noon :meh:













    (actually I'm pulling midnight shift for the last 2 months... I grab a couple hours in the evening before heading to the office)
     
  12. truly!

    aside from having a unique and beautiful look, some of the finest detail work you'll see, they play spectacularly and sound outrageously beautiful!

    I made a regular pain of myself at Jerzy's booth, as he and Yves will tell you. they even snapped some pics of me being an idiot...
