This Elrick is extremely nice......there has been nothing held back on anything. The pick-ups are custom Aeros, the electronics are Aguilar OBP-3, the neck is a truly custom quarter-sawn Wenge 1pc, the body is a super light Swamp Ash (that has slight flames). The top is EXTREMELY RARE, there are only 4 basses or guitars, that are known of, that have this type of Quilted Curled White Ash Top. There is one other type of ash that has Quilts and Curls, it's called Tamo Ash.....this one is not Tamo Ash. Any other instruments that you see with those Tamo Ash tops are NOT the same. Those tops are super thin veneers, but are still expensive. The other three basses with a true Quilted/Curled White Ash top are a Hannewinkle 5, the 25th Anniversary Fodera Emperor II Elite, and my CallowHill Junk 5. Here is the Elrick link to my bass, it originally had Bart PU's and Pre-Amp. I went through Rob to upgrade this bass: http://elrick.com/gallery.php?id=14 Here are some very recent pics, and if you have any questions, just send me a PM. I need to mention that I sell Rob and many other high-end guitar/bass builders, their swamp ash for their bodies......this bass is extrememly light weight and was hand picked out. This bass weighs in around 8lbs: If you could even find another top like this one has; the price would run you around $2500...just for the top. The custom Aeros would run you at least $500. The total cost on this bass new, would be around $6500. I am asking $3750 o.b.o., shipped to the lower 48 states.
