    AFAIK only two members here have a Jerzy Drozd: RAM and By-Tor...
    The number of people GASing for one, however, is much higher ;)
    Myself included ;)
    :smug:
    :p
    :meh: But till I can afford it...

  6. I saw a picture of one a year or so back... since then, I have GAS... even just to play one. I don't have money though.
     
  7. Even for a 6-string, the nut looks really wide on this bass ... how wide is the neck at the nut?

    Even though I'm not such a big fan of black-burl poplar, it looks very nice even now...

    What i have a serious case of GAS for is:
    Mastery 6
    34" scale
    quilt bubinga on ash body
    wenge-bubinga neck with morado FB
    Bart triples with OBP-3
    Black hardware, two-piece bridge
    :smug:

    That's an interesting one. However, I'd rather go for a Legend :smug:

    Was that at the Frankfurter Musikmesse?
    I'll see if I can make it down there (or up there ;) ) this year

    I'm not really sure. With a wenge/bubinga neck and a walnut body, it's a little neck heavy, though. The maple neck or maple with wenge stringers balance very well.

    Watch out...Jerzy really knows how to make a B string growl on a 34"!

    I'd put my 34" up against an MTD or Lakland 35" scale any day!:D

    hmmm..i have to check it,but its not wider than yamaha trb 6p
     
  16. That could be true ... Yamaha TRB's have a pretty wide neck as well compared to many other 6's.

    Hey that's Carles Benavente! Absolutely unique & virtuoso flamenco bass player with Paco de Lucia. His five string bass has a hi C, fairly narrow spacing, and possibly a 32" scale (not sure about that). His style is quite guitaristic and uses a lot of chords. So make sure that's the kind of instrument you want.

    Yes, I have been communicating with Jerzy recently. The bass designed for Carles will be called the 'Barcelona' model.

    5-strings (narrow spacing)
    Maple neck-through
    Cedar body
    Spruce top
    Semi-hollow

    It is perfect for my own requirements. I too play with a plectrum and use a lot of chords.

    AAAAARRGH. Must hold GAS. (that's what she said) ;)


    These are great looking basses that folks rant about. Too bad there are virtually no dealers in the US, therefore no practical way of hearing or playing one.
