    If so, What are your thoughts? How was the B string?

    Thanks,

    Not a five, but several sixes with 34". B strings were (are) fine- not really a noticeable difference in tone or tension IME.

    Thanks! Are your current Elricks 34 in?

    Was there an additional charge for the custom order?

    Yes, my fretless Elrick is 34" (the fretted 6 was 34" as well; sold it to order a new Elrick with tighter spacing, life happened and stole my moneyz, and now I'm using an Ibanez :D) There was a $250 upcharge IIRC
