FT for a 6'r: Upgraded Elrick ExPat NJS5 & Lakland Skyline 55-64
Would like to trade these towards a six string. Prefer 35 (or 36) scale. Maybe a Spector NS-6XL, Warwick Thumb Wide neck, open to fretless as well.
Elrick ExPat NJS5:
New old stock NJS 5 received on a trade with an Elrick dealer. Upgrades include: US Hipshot Ultralight Chrome tuners, US Hipshot B Chrome/Brass .750 bridge, Schaller Strap locks, Nordstrand NJ5S pickups & Nordstrand 3B-5a preamp. (pups & pre done by professional not me). I also have a black pick guard on order with Elrick. If/when it shows up I will forward to you.
Specs from Elrick:
Antique Tobacco Burst
24 frets + zero fret
High gloss lacquer finish
3-piece quarter-sawn maple neck
Quarter-sawn rosewood fretboard
2-way adjustable truss rod
Bartolini J-coil Jazz pickups
Bartolini NTMBF 3-band pre-amp w/2-way mid and active bypass
Fully shielded control cavity
Satin Hipshot Ultra-light tuners
Satin Elrick bridge
Dunlop Dual Design strap buttons (Straplok compatible!)
Elrick Fundamental strings
Elrick Zero Gravity case
2013 Lakland Skyline 55-64 Maple Ash:
This was a recent purchase here. Upgrades include: US Hipshot Black Ultralights, Black string retainer, black knobs and a custom pick guard. (Some of these parts are not in yet but they will be included). Also, the fret ends were very sharp when I got it so I filed them down the best I could. Not a professional job but they are much better then before. Includes gig bag for shipping.
Trade value for both around $2200. Sell for: Elrick = $1300, Lakland $700.
All original parts will be included if you want them (Note that the original tuners will be loose on the Lakland as the US hipshot metal is a tad thicker so I had to widen the tuner holes a bit.)
Both have brand new strings installed. Elrick has LaBella Deep Talkin' Flats and Lakland has Thomastik Infeld "TI" Jazz Flats.
