Finding a 6 string bass with a Jazz Bass style is hard enough, but it you want it to be ultralightweight, beautiful, great sounding and afforfable, you know that's almost impossible.
That's why we are so happy to offer you this cool Maruszczyk Elwood L that delivers in all departments.
It weighs in at just 4kg, is a joy to play and look at, and it sounds absolutely great.
The L in this model stands for "Lightweight" so you know what you are getting. This is achieved by using a 2 piece body that is chambered and then an exotic top is used to cover it.
The ultra low weight is just the beginning. The bass of course also sounds and plays great. We chose a set of Delano JC6HEpickups that are actually humbuckers in single coil shape that actually sound like Singlecoils but with no noise at all. O.K., there's plenty of Noiseless pickups out there but few really sound as crisp and clear as true Singlecoils. These Delano pickups are just amazing. The bass sounds just great in passive mode but the active Glockenklang preamp offers 2 really nice and musical bands of EQ.
The Flamed maple top and matching headstock complete this really nice package and the 24 fret neck is great if you want to get into chord work.
To sum up: if you are looking for a lightweight, great sounding powerful and versatile 6 string bass that won't break your wallet, this is it. Hard (or impossible) to find a bass with these features, comfort and sound bellow 2000€.
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).
