    Jerzy Drozd Obsession 'Signature'

    Relisting for trade only - I'd prefer to trade this for a Fodera Emperor Standard 5 or higher model with 19mm string spacing but I'll consider a lower value bass as a PARTIAL TRADE with cash to balance. Please contain trade offers to 5 string Basses that must have 1 3/4" or wider nut and 18.5-19mm string spacing.

    This gorgeous bass is in near mint condition and is absolutely stunning. I put the condition on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being mint) at 9.9. I can't find a single mark on it. I've babied it and so have the previous owners. I've come to realize that I can't do 18mm or less spacing so it just sits and that is a crime. This girl needs to come out and strut her stuff!

    My good friend, Steve Araujo from The Bass Hang, recently recorded this bass as a favor for me as I figured you'd like to hear what it can do in the hands of a pro. Check it out here:

    HIGHLY figured spalted maple top
    Body: Figured Walnut body with multiple body laminates
    Fret board: Ebony
    Neck wood: Multiple piece, tiger maple & Purple Heart, Wenge and Mahogany
    Truss rod: Double action
    Bridge: Jerzy Drozd proprietary two-piece bridge, fully adjustable
    String Spacing: Adjustable from 17.5mm to 18.5mm. Currently set at 18mm
    Nut Width: 1 7/8"
    Tuners: Gold Gotoh tuners
    Frets: 24 medium frets
    Pick Ups: JeDXS bass pickups - Jerzy Drozd split single coil type
    Preamp: OP3 Aguilar 3 band, with Pick selector Knob, 1 Mid freq switch and active/passive switch
    Matching wood knobs and pick up covers.
    Weight: 9lbs, 8oz

    Putting the trade value at $4,500. Actual replacement cost on this bass would be around $10K.

    Will ship to the CONUS in a very nice TKL hard shell case in great condition.

    That's pretty bad when you own a bass this nice and can't remember where you got it from or which of you two had it first!:)

    Beautiful bass! Probably the nicest looking Jerry Drozd that I've seen. I'd love to give a Drozd a try but I'm afraid that this one's a bit rich for my current music account.
