We always try to have some Left handed basses at Doctorbass.net
The Elwood model is a best seller within the Maruszczyk family and it is easy to see why. the classic design and ergonomics make it feel like home as soon as you play it. This model in particular is made using the TCS (Tone Chamber System) methof which consists of making some routings on the body to remove weight and then add a top to cover it (in this case ash, the same as the body). The whole idea with this bass was to make it as 70's J looking/sounding as possible so we chose black block inlays as well as black hardware.
This bass comes with a set of Maruszczyk handwound Single Coil pickups and we have to say these are among the best we've ever heard in this category. It sounds wonderful in passive mode, but the active Glockenklang unit is a cool feature as you can get a more powerful sound if you need it.
What's really interesting about Maruszczyk basses is that you get a bass with an excellent value for money (nobody is offering this quality for this price, honest) and you can also decide the specs of your personal bass, just like any other Custom Shop bass but with a really short build up time of just 8 weeks and an amazingly low price tag. There's no upcharge for the custom process (the final price of course depends on the specs themselves), and this also sets Maruszczyk basses apart from the rest.
The ordering method is simple and fast (again different to almost any other Custom Shop process): contact us and let us guide you through the different models, options and specs. We'll get back to you in 1-2 days with a price quote including shipping. Once we get your deposit (30%) we'll start the process and you will get your custom bass in 8-9 weeks.
We always have a number of excellent Maruszczyk basses in stock at all times at the shop for immediate shipping so if you don't want (or cannot) wait, just choose one of these and you'll get it in the next day or days (depending on where you are based). Our selection of in stock Maruszczyk basses is based on the most popular models with the specs we think are better suited for each one of these models.
