    I'm really pumped because I have a Elrick NJS Custom coming from Mark Beem next week. I've had my eye on this for a while now. Specs are:

    Elrick NJS Custom
    Black limba body with beautiful one piece figured walnut top.
    Macassar Ebony Board on Wenge neck
    Single Bartolini pickup with 18v. Aguilar preamp. 19mm spacing @ bridge.

    What do you guys think? :hyper:

    That bass is gonna sound great, and I love the way it looks.
    Nice woods!

  3. One of my favorite elricks... everything about the looks of that bass just falls into place. Bet it sounds killer too with that single pickup.

    that's my favorite elrick too.
    i'd have to put a bridge pickup in it though.

    Thats a very cool looking bass, but id put another PU in there too ;) but i bet it sounds killer
     
  7. I believe this bass calls for a new word to describe what I think of it. Hotnitude.

    My last couple of dual pickup basses including my previous Elrick all had the blend control turned 100% to the neck pickup anyhow so I should be good to go.

    Very very cool. I love that pickup config!

    The few Elricks I've played have been amazing.

    Anyone else read this as Mesa Boogie and then get pissed off that it was in the bass thread?

    Or am I the only one ? :bag:

    Why would an amp thread be in basses or the word bass be in the title? Oh Well :rollno:
