    That is really sweet, I played my first one yesterday afternoon... It looked very much like yours but with 7 strings.

    The piezos sounded amazing, I love the tone blended. The neck is beefy but very comfy... the tone is really versatile. I don't think that I have ever played anything like it before in my life.

    I 'll try to make some picture as I am very bad in using digital camera and putting it up in the computer , I'll do it as soon as I can , as well as try to do some clip .
    But here is some short review on this beast:
    Spec : All the same as Jerzy's spec in his site except it is 34" scale and without LED .
    Review :
    It is the most beautiful bass I ever have in my life or have seen. The neck is assymetris , thin at bottom on the Higher string so it it makes it so easy to play. The Action is at the lowest without buzz anywhere so my hand needs so little pressure to play. The low B string is very tight and articulate , more than any of my other Highend basses. I mostly play 4 strings but this 6 is so easy to play.
    The workmanship is fantastic, all detail , wood joints finish were done with high attention and LOVE ( that's what I told Jerzy :) ) I could say more on this just fantastic job !
    The light case is also very good quality.
    The bridge and saddle is made by him and also first class.
    Pick up is humcancelling of hi own made with OBP 3 way preamp. Piezo pick up is included so you can have acoustic sound too.
    Sound : Modern sound with attack and punch , not the same as Jazz or precision or F bass sound. The highs is smooth.
    As you see with many knobs , mid selector toggle, Piezo pick up you can do alot of differnt sound combination . Until now I do not have time to explore all of these possibilities.
    All and all I would say this bass is worth the price they ask for.
    For you guys in the US , Call Dan Lenard ( a very nice guy ) he would be able to give you more explanation and perhaps a try ?

    I played that same bass today, and it is indeed quite sweet :D I, however, didn't think to bring a camera. Oh well. I'll get a picture of me playing the double neck next time.
