I have been looking around at some basses. I am looking for a good 5-sting. I will probably go used because it seems I always get the most for my money that way. I was seeing some Elrick Gold Standard 5-stings around used for some very reasonable prices. they don't have anything real fancy in the wood tops but I am looking for something more simple and just classy looking. I was also looking at some Roscoes, which I have played before. can anyone tell me some about the Elricks and how they might compare? or if there is anything else you have seen around that I might conisder. thanks.
