The bass is in good condition, technically tiptop, with usual optical used tracks (on the back of the body) and on the top plate smaller things, which I captured in the photos as best as possible.
The tone and response is extremely direct and resonant. The playability very comfortable.

Now up for grabs this beautiful Jerzy Drozd 5 strings bass. A great bass with the following specs:
Aguilar Preamp 3 bands active/passive
Weight: 4 kg.
I used to have doubts about the 35" scale, but this bass has erased them all. I can barely find any difference to my 34" basses in the ergonomy or the feeling at playing. It is extremely easy to play, with great balance and an amazing build quality. A wonderful instrument that really makes justice to the fame of the builder.
The Jerzy has some cosmetic wear that can be seen in the pictures. It has already been -generously- applied to the final price of 980 pounds. It is located in Bilbao - Spain.

a rose is a rose is a rose ... is just
And this is one of the most incredible basses I ever had the chance to call it one of mine.
Stuning, marvellous, an absolutely work of art.
It´s is a Jerzy Drozd Mastery VI
Absolutley no chips or dents, like brand new. Cause it is like brand new.
Long story short:
I bought this bass last year in september from Jesus Rico from spain. Originally the bass was a fretless one with a natural color.
Unfortunately sometimes later the truss rod broke.
So there was no other possibility to sent the bass to master luthier Jerzy Drozd to repaire it.
As you can see, this bass is a neck through version, so not only the fretboard has to be removed to fix the truss rod, after that, the bass had to be completely repainted.
I´d decided to gave her a new color and turn it to a fretted version. Drozd suggested to chance the pickup to the newest version, too.
So what do you see here right now, is an instrument that´s like a new one direct out of the workshop from Jerzy Drozd, but the woods are originaly assembled in 2005, the fretboard, fretwork, pickup and color are brand new.
The entire repair costs were: 2.798,- EUR (bills available)
Why do I sell her right now.
I own three Ritter basses, a sixer and two fivers. When the Drozd came back from repair I put my Ritter´s beside and played the Drozd for a while - only at home, no band pratice, no gig -, than I take my Ritter 6 String Classic and after seconds one thing was abolutly clear. The Ritter still the bass for me, in every aspect. The Drozd will allways be like a back up, it´ll be never played on stage or in a band, I´ll allways take my Ritter. And last but not least I am not a collector. That´s it.
