    Not yet, but I'll take some good ones in the daylight tomorrow and post 'em. That one and the Basslab are my 2 faves. The quality of the Elricks is easily on par with a NYC Sad IME. In fact I ordered a NYC Sad and returned it after a trial because the Classic body shape feels so good in my hands (I already had the ash/Mac ebony Elrick) and ordered the 2nd Elrick. The fretwork is perfect, and the feel and sound with the TI flats (my 1st experience with them) remarkably even (reminds me of my old Dingwalls in that respect). It's the lightest solidbody wood bass I've played and still balances well. Gives me a %$#@ eating grin every time I play it.

    Your Classic is the first one I've ever seen to have the rounded transition between the top wood and the body below the upper horn- that's something that's on all the e-volutions, but not on the Classics (it's usually a straight line). Did you request it to be made that way?

    You, Sir, have an eye for detail:D. No, all I specified were the woods, P/J config, scale and the fact that although it's passive a control cavity has been made just in case. I guess it's just what struck Mr. E's fancy at the time.
