Maruszczyk bass are handmade, produced in Poland and designed by Adrian MARUSZCZYK. Adrian is a professional bass player in Germany.There are many advantages of playing handmade bass guitar. In generaly the bass players only focus on the tone but there are so many important details for professional bass players.
If you have a bass weight more than 4.5 kg , the stage may suffer.In addition, a non- bass heavy , heavy neck diving is called the body of the handle , the situation with continuous gravity to press down on the handle , can even lead to very painful situations. Because you unwittingly effort to remove the handle with your left hand you exert . If you don't want to face these situations,
not only tone of the bass , you should focus on comfort and stability.

The voice of reason says this:

While I'm certain that you're ecstatic with the basses, please let's not start going the Talk Bass route and having clubs.

It's irritating enough that there's these overlong, 'show us your <insert bass here>' threads (rather than individual topics), but if we go the route of clubs, before you know it people will be feverishly requesting Fender/Lakland/Rickenbacker club numbers.

Enjoy your basses, but please dispense with this official club nonsense.

Call me cynical but does anybody else feel that maybe the OP has some kind of vested interest with these basses?
The posts just seems like adverts to me.

I do think that if you are writing about the basses that you sell, as the Maruszczyk dealer for Turkey, that you should be upfront concerning the financial vested interest you have in pushing these basses. And, if you are advertising on this site, I believe that you should pay to do so. Rather than posting as if you are a normal user.

I don't want to sell anything to UK. If you want to buy a Maruszczyk basses, you can buy from U.K or Germany. I am playing the Maruszczyk basses but If anyone wants to buy a Maruszczyk basses, I can help the bass players from TURKEY. If I can't share my videos as a bass player, I am sorry. I am not a commercial man here, I am here as a bass player. You can check the Maruszczyk slogan. It is ''from player to player''.

I've played and owned two Maruszczyk basses and rate them highly. From one bass player to another, it is worth checking them out.

Frankly, I'm delighted that Mr Engin has posted here in GBD.

i) There is to my knowledge no official prohibition on Owners' Clubs, though individual members express an animus against them for reasons of a personal nature. It was with this latter in mind that I inaugurated the 'Commodore / Coily / Univox Semi Owners Club' which current enjoys membership in high single figures.

ii) Be it an expression of unconfined joy or calculated commerciality, Mr Engin's post here via Google Translate adds immeasurably to the gaiety of nations. Had it appeared in the arid wastes of Affiliates I would never have discovered that the cure for neck dive is to press down on the handle in opposition to the continuous gravity.

iii) I shall probably buy one of these items so that when someone asks me 'What bass is that?' I shall be able to reply 'It's a frog', opening up all sorts of possibilities for comedic misunderstandings, amphibian puns and whatnot.

Let's give the guy a free run, eh? :)

Wow, so much hostility about a thread.

To clarify things Adrian Maruszczyk does not use agents or distributors, he told me that himself at the bass show. He sell directly or to shops.

I don't think anyone is trying to sell anything to anyone here.

If you like Maruszczyk read on, show yours, ask questions. If not, there's plenty of threads for headstock name snobs out there to comment on.

@Mike2tone - interesting that you choose to go on the offensive within your first three posts.

There isn't any hostility in here; new members posting lots of updates on a brand that otherwise didn't have much of a presence on the forum just stinks of guerrilla marketing, the posts are clearly supposed to read like a fan writing about their new bass but when it turns out the writer is a dealer for the brand it then becomes a bit underhanded in my eyes. It's using the forum for free hits without actually contributing either financially or even with knowledge sharing to help the community.

The basses do actually look quite nice & I'm sure plenty of people here would like them - I believe they were at the London Bass show this weekend so maybe anyone that played one would like to chip in with a review?

Do you have one - maybe you could share your opinions?

Count me in as a Maruszczyk user.
This is my Jake, a P Bass type in Fiesta Red.
I've put a replacement pickup and a Parallel / series switch in to create a few sound options. They was nothing wrong with Adrians original pickup I just wanted a different vibe.
Build quality and materials are good and the sound is fantastic..... a very easy player.
I believe Adrian builds quality instruments without the silly custom ticket prices.
His website lists what's in stock and new versions of his basses are added when they become available. If you want something specific he can build you YOUR bass. I just picked one from the list of in stock basses and I'm very pleased with what I got.
Next purchase is going to be a Elwood or Jazzus :gas: ....... To much choice :)
I have nothing to do with Adrian, Im just a very satisfied customer. Check out........

Maybe an appreciation thread would be a better alternative, in the "Gear Porn" section.

Been looking at these basses for a couple weeks and the 6 string "frog" models really have me interested. Would love to try one.

If they do custom orders than colour me intrigued.

Hello.
About this. I have put an order for a costum one. It would be a Frog 5.
I choose all the woods, hardware, electronics, pickups and custom ideas for it.
It has been a person to reach very easy (adrian). It gave me around 8 to 10 weeks to make it.

I have already played with one, and its very nice instrumets. Its a brand that don't have a "fender" name, but it don't mean that can be equally good or even better. Since its a "single person" brand, the advertisig or brand "propagation" will be with persons that know, or play with their instruments.

When mine arrive, i'll put some photos of it ;)
