Well I finally got my late Xmas gift (to myself)- an Elrick 4 string thru neck. I wanted to play it a couple days and jam with it against some distortiony guitars before I said anything, but I must say it is the best bass I've ever played. Unbelievable. It's all the sounds I've wanted out of a bass-warm, rich, organic, AND clear. I've played some high end stuff in my day, but I never thought any of them were worth the price tag (smith,pedulla,zon,alembic,fodera,etc.) The Elrick smokes them all. And I got a great price on it as well. Anyone else have any experiences with these basses? Hey rojo, let me know when you're in next at GC and I'll bring it in for you to check out. RS yheay for me!
