Minor imperfections on headstock -- small ding near nut. Tuners look like they were over-tightened causing finish cracking.
From Adrian Maruszczyk: "For 30 years and counting, I've been putting my heart into music and everything related to it. I've had the opportunity to use a variety of different instruments, amps and other gear during live shows and studio work. Thanks to extensive testing and research, I collected a great deal of experience in the areas of clay woods, pickups, hardware and strings.
The knowledge I collected during those years allowed me to create musical instruments, amplifiers and accessories for the working musician's functionality, tone and price / performance ratio are second to none. The constant development and improvement of my products will always remain my top priority."
Maruszczyk Frog Beta 5 String Bass
The distinguishing feature of this instrument is a set neck for smooth, even tone. By using a very thin polyurethane matte finish, which protects the wood from external influences, a particularly powerful sound is achieved with wide frequency spectrum - a true interaction between strings and wood. As a result, the Frog has an exceptionally strong voice and a wide frequency response. The ergonomically formed body adapts perfectly to the body of the player, thus enabling a natural feel on the fretboard.
The body of this Frog is made of ash. The neck consists of three-piece hard rock maple and is complemented with a padouk fingerboard.
