    I've mentioned a few times to some of you the maker of my double bass, Peter Elias, and that I highly recommend his instruments. I've noticed that this month's (November) Strad magazine has done a big article on him, so if you are ineterested, check it out.

    There is a short excerpt of the article on the Strad website. Follow this link:

    I'm curious to hear if anybody else on this board has any experience with his instruments. They are very popular in the Toronto area and there are quite a few pros around here that play an Elias as their main instrument.

    I have an Elias solid body electric bass. I am currently searching for more information on my bass... There seems to be nothing on the web about his basses. The serial number on my bass is 081. I would like to contact Peter and ask about the history. Anyone with any info on contacting him would be awesome! Please email me at info@neuronitrate.com

    Also, I love this bass, it is my baby and I would NEVER part with it.

    Hi Louis,

    Now that I think of it, SMR Double Basses in Evanston, IL had an Elias 5 string in the shop that might be for sale. This goes back a year or more. If interested you might contact Steve Reinfranck.
