    Not this exact one, but I've played a classic n/t 5 before. Loved it to bits, so I'm buying this one unplayed. There is always the 48 hour return period, but I don't think I'll be needing it :D

    Wow Wilson, congrats! And welcome to the Elrick owner's group - Josh and I are both proud owners of Elrick NJS's (actually Josh owns 2).

    you're gonna LOVE it - especially the neck!

    You probably won't need it. Every Elrick I've ever played was consistently fantastic! Only one other manufacturer I've come across has been that consistent: Jerzy Drozd.

    I'm kinda thinkin' I might need to pick me up a 6-string Elrick one of these days.

    Enjoy!:D

    That bass is seriously light as well. One of my favs which snuk over the border to the last Atlanta TB get together.
    Congratulations.

    I think one Elrick will do me for now :)

    With that and my Thumb 5 and my Hot Rod Precision, I'm set. I'm selling my lakland 55-02 deluxe and trace elliot t-bass 5 and adding cash to get this one.

    I really really liked the Lakland and Trace, but they never felt as good as the Warwick did to me. I decided I'd rather have two fantastic basses and one really good one than one fantastic one and three really good ones.

    that is very sweet also, I saw that one for sale. If it had been a 5, I'd have probably been all over it.

    That is a nice bass, I like the burl top.
    Congrats on your new bass.

    I've never played an Elrick, but I do own a Jerzy
    Drozd Excellency. As stated by RAM, they are comparable in craftmanship, so I know it's a sweet bass.
    I bought my Jerzy Drozd unplayed also, I was definitly not disappointed. I'm sure you won't be either.

    You won't need it, trust me, this bass is incredible!

    ...er...

    :eek:

    Stachio, we needa talk my friend! :mad:

    ;)


    Naw, it's not used, it just "visited" Atlanta a few months ago!

    It was treated with tender loving care, and was the belle of the ball (or at least one of 'em).
     
  16. Mmmm, purdy... Me want one now...
