    No worries, mate. Every Elrick bass guitar ships with a free oversized 100% cotton bib! ;):D

    Congratulations! Of course, the hard part is the wait... The THG knobs is a nice touch, be sure to post a picture.

    Sounds very cool. I didn't know 26 frets was an option- what's the upcharge for that? I wonder if he would keep the truss rod access on the body. BTW, a matching headstock has been standard on all of his basses forever now- I've only actually seen two that didn't have matching headstocks, and they were probably over 10 years old.

    i don't think there was an upcharge for the extra frets, if there was i paid it, i wanted something unique that i had not seen on an elrick before. i had to pay the upcharge to drop it down to 34" scale, rob said 26 frets was not a problem on that scale. He didnt think his truss rods were long enough for 26 frets on a 35" scale.

    so i guess this might be the first 26 fret he builds?

    Come to think of it, there was one NJS that's been on eBay a couple times that had 26 frets and Aero pickups. That's the only other one I can think of though. He's done 22 frets for Japan, but everything else is 24.

    Congrats on the new bass! I really dig the SC's, I haven't owned one of Rob's yet, but they are on my GAS list. That wait is killer, but you know it will be perfect when it arrives.
     
  9. Yep, Rob told me that he does 22 frets, Vol/Vol, and a recessed bridge mount for the Japan models...I found that interesting.

    are those models not available in the US? or are they just in japan right now?


    boy are those pics beautiful!!! i really wanted matching pickup covers too but they were only available on the aero pickups and i didn't do my homework on those pickups so i just stuck with the bartolini's.


    thanks for the pics they will do fine for the next day or so, until my G.A.S. pains start flaring up again!!!

    Those are all in the Kurosawa shops in Japan. You can buy them, but with the dollar being what it is, that wouldn't be wise :D The 22 fret option is suppsedly Japan-only as well.

    Are those all Aero pick-ups? Might I add that those look very tasty.

    Yup, Aeros. Rob won't do wooden pickup covers, but he'll use the Aeros with the wood tops. I never asked him why.

    I know that Larry at Aero makes wooden covers for his pick-ups. Maybe thats why only the Aeros have them.
