FS Elrick New Jazz Standard NJS5 Exotic Spalted Maple Burl

Discussion in 'For Sale: Bass Guitars' started by thomasjbass, Aug 23, 2012.

  1. This is a wonderfully made Rob Elrick Gold New Jazz Standard 5-String bass. This bass is very well made, masterfully crafted and plays like a complete dream. This is one of the better New Jazz Standards that I have owned out of the 5 that I have owned. The action is setup low without any issues of buzzing or intonation. In addition, this one has one of the most unique tops I have ever seen especially in this model, and it has a matching headstock to boot. For those of your unfamiliar with the Elrick NJS series, these are very versatile jazz basses that sound and play very well. My asking price on this bass is [DEL]$2050[/DEL] $1975$ + Shipping in CONUS.

  8. Also, might consider a trade for the right model Breitling watch. I know its an odd request, but if you have one with all certificates and box in mint condition please feel free to throw it my way.

  10. What a beauty. This matches my Elrick Platinum SC. If I wasn't selling my SC I would add this one to pair with it beautifully. Elrick makes incredible basses. BUMP!

    love how clean is the circuit cavity....
  12. My thoughts exactly. All my Elricks are very neat and tidy inside and out. SHIPSHAPE!
  13. Rob has the Apple mentality, make every part of what you build just as nice on the outside as it is on the inside. Quality on the inside is just as important as what is on the outside.
  14. This bass has a relatively flat and fast neck. It is similar to the evolution.

    Additional partial trade interests: 2011 or newer 17" MacBook Pro in good shape with all accessories included. My 13" just isn't cutting it any more. Depending on details will take as partial trade on this one.
