This is a 2002 Elrick Gold Standard 7 with wenge neck, maple-board and burl maple top with matching headstock overlay. Incredibly light bass! With the possible exception of the stunning Conklin dragonwood basses, this one is the featherweight king. The 3 band Aguilar pre is warm and punchy, a good match with the Bart J p/u's. I've got a few setup issues to handle, most specifically some wicked, sharp fret edges (temp changes from Chicago to Southern Calif are a bitch this time of year!) and then I'll probably gig with it the weekend of Feb. 14.
