Elrick Platinum E-volution Thru-Neck 6

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by Freddy-G., May 21, 2011.


  1. From the hands of Rob Elrick is this incredible 6 string bass. I've been in awe of it from the minute I laid my eyes on it. I purchased it new from the Atlanta Bass Gallery late last year. The tone is the best I've heard from Bartolini electronics. A modern take on a vintage sound. I play it all the time in my practice room, but I play in a classic rock/blues band, so it doesn't fit the image. Someone needs to play the heck out of it! Condition is mint/perfect. Yep, still like new. The Elrick gig bag is really beefy and high quality.

    Scale length?
     
  3. 35". The neck feels very comfortable in my hand. The narrow front to back makes it really easy to play.
     
  4. What if~~ you ship it to Seoul, South Korea?
     
  5. I'll consider it, but I'd rather ship in the CONUS.
     
  6. The maple top is really something to behold. If you look at it up close and move it around at different angles, you'll notice a 3D effect. The grain appears to move and change appearance.
     
  7. The two switches are: active/passive and mid frequency selector.

    I remember having a long talk with Rob about a possible build. He is a real character and a great builder.

    One of my students back in the 90's had a fretless 6 hybrid acoustic/electric that Rob built. Aside from the Bart he used a Shertler for the acoustic sound. Now THAT was a truly amazing bass. You wouldn't believe the Pink Ivory fingerboard. Not like the stuff you see nowadays. It was all swirly with cream and tan and various shades of warmer pink colors. I've never seen anything like that before or since. Unbelievable axe.

    Bump for a yummy looking six that I will never get my hands on.

    Cheers.
     
  13. Kevin, you're making me want to call Rob for a custom build. That bass you described sounds nice! :bassist:

    Beautiful bass Gary! That is indeed a killer top.

    Elrick basses have a great feeling neck too.

    Bump for a great TB'er!
     
  15. Thanks, Joe. If it doesn't sell, I'll be fine with keeping it! Yeah, the neck is awesome. I know there's some kind of finish there, but it doesn't feel like it. It's VERY smooth. :)

    I know it's crazy (call it a crazy bump I suppose), but are you 1000% sure that's not a pink ivory fretboard? It looks outstanding either way, but if it didn't say cocobolo in the description and i was guessing, I might have put money on pink ivory :)
     
  17. Interesting. :) Jim, I'm not that familiar with pink ivory, but when I was buying the bass, I said to Jim Rubio (Atlanta Bass Gallery) that it looks like cocobolo and he looked at the spec sheet and said yes, it's cocobolo.

    I just did a google search for pink ivory and looked at some samples, and they do look very similar. Good eye, Jim! ;)

    Looks like a bubinga board to me. The pink ivory board on my fretless is very pink. Cocobola is usually on the dark side. If u email Rob he might be able to give u the specs on the woods but I'm betting bubinga board.
     
  19. You can buy one of these at Bass Central for $4310. Or you can buy my mint condition Elrick for $2400. ;) :D
     
  20. Took some new photos. Makes me want to keep it. Not for the gorgeous looks. This baby will rock your world! :bassist:
