This is an excellent Jerzy Drozd Excellency model 6 string bass with a really nice zebrawood top and ebony fingerboard. It is a used bass but it is in pristine condition.
Lightweight, comfortable and with absolutely perfect balance from string to string. This is a bolt on instrument but access to the upper frets is unresticted because of the way the neck is set deeply into the body (reaching the neck pickup). Amazing sustain and perfect attack. This bass proves that you can play any style on a 6 string bass, be it nromal lines, slapping, tapping, chords, melodies, etc. Think of it as an unrestricted musical platform.
Jerzy Drozd's own noisecancelling Single Coils pickups behave beautifully and offer a full and clear sound throughtout the whole range of the instrument. An Aguilar OBP-3 preamp is used to maximize the sonic potential. Apart from the 3 band EQ there's also a 400/800Hz mid frequency selector as well as a convenient Active-Passive switch.
and the new name reflects this is not a basic bass at all. The Soul models includes all the features of most Jerzy Drozd Basses except a more stripped down look (no exotic top) and a really nice price tag. This particular model sports an ultralight swamp ash body (it weighs in at a mere 3,05kg), 34" scale (except of the standard 35"), 38mm nut (instead of the standard 44mm nut). The unlined ebony board has lines on the side and also on the board from "fret" 12th to help you with correct intonation. It is very easy to achieve a convincing Jaco growl with the bridge pickup rolling off the Tone control as well as a wonderful "mwah".
