    a drummer friend of mine has been letting me borrow his upright that was handed down from his father, which has worked out great for me since I can't afford to buy one.... Just out of curiosity, how much do plywood Juzeks go for?? This one is in pretty good shape, it's got a bunch on minor scratches, but no cracks or anything major..... I put a realist pickup in it & it sounds wonderful

    I used to play on a great Juzek ply. It had solid maple ribs, though. I'd guess a realistic range, depending on condition and set-up, would be $1500 to 3000.

    I bought one about 4 years ago for $2300 and I needed to have repair work done to make it playable. I have about $2800 into it.

    It was worth it to me since it does sound real nice...a lot of guys who have heard it and played it think it's carved.
