    I'm just wondering because the Elrick I'm looking at buying has a silver finish and when I visited the Elrick website I didn't see a single bass that had been painted. All had one kind of fancy top or another. Just wondering if this can come standard or if it was perhaps a refin.

    I've seen a transparent color finish, but never a solid one.

    Few high end builders seem willing to do it, unless you're willing to shell out another $300+ to get it.

    Meanwhile, I'm thinkin' "Shouldn't an exotic maple vomit top cost more?"

    The silver-finish Elrick has been up for sale before, and is original as far as I know, but it's one of the few solid-color Elricks I've heard of.

    Hey Matt, I just saw your wanted ad on Bassgear. Are you not a fan of singlecuts?
