    Elrick Expat Handmade e-volution 4-String Bass Guitar, Natural Satin Finish, Gabon Ebony Fretless Fingerboard – #1880416

    I’m the original owner who purchased from Elrick in January 2017 for $2524. It has seen very light use as fretless is not my forte. It’s in mint/as-new condition and has been kept in the case in a climate controlled environment. Upon receipt, I restrung with Thomastik Infeld flats. So, the fretboard reflects little wear from the original rounds. What little playing the bass has received has been with flatwounds (TI and Sadowsky Blue flats), although I recently put the Elrick rounds back on that shipped with the bass as I’m guessing most folks prefer rounds. Pics are with Sadowsky Blue Flats.

    Here are the Elrick specs when I purchased it. It weighs 8lbs.
