    My 8 lb. fretless SC5, burl maple over ash, pink ivorywood board, Aero's is still the one. I let another bass player play a song on it during a gig, and he's still after me to sell it to him, he's up to $3,000 and is dead serious, he's got the $ in a special account in case I ever change my mind.

    I used to think it was maybe a little too "round" sounding in a Classic Rock setting, then I heard it recorded in CD - wow, it absolutely dominated the band (2 Les Pauls at that!). :D

    Probably not. Elricks tend to have their own unique vibe. Jazz-ish but I doubt I'd mistake one for a Fender or clone. The highs are very distinctive.


    That bass has an Aguilar preamp. I just checked out a Platinum 5 with the OBP-3 and as much as I like that preamp in one of my Brubakers I didn't care for it at all in the Elrick. Different strokes.

    BTW the price on this at GGuitars is very reasonable IMO. Very.

    JR,

    I owned that exact bass for a little while( I bought it new). It does have a j-ish sound to it but Not exactly close enough.

    The Bartolini coils gave it a nice warm sound, but it didn't really seem to have that growl. Neck was also a little chunker than my last Elrick.

    If it had J-pickups and was a 34" I would have kept it.

    That bass is absolutely amazing in person.....Light weight, balanced perfect, and that top {just look at that top}.........

    But the biggest factor was that it has a 35" scale.

    I have an Elrick Gold Standard 5 that came my way from fellow TBer Big Joe. I really love this bass. So much so that my MTD 535 went bye bye. I would like to get another one in the future.

    Wish I could have been quicker on the draw w/ GGuitars on that Elrick! Maybe I can track down the current owner and trade him my rig ;-)
     
  16. Hey Sufenta,
    I love my Elrick proto 5'er too, but mama says I have to let it go to make room for the new F I just got from Adrian Garcia.
    Look for it to be posted for sale soon. I hate to see it go, it responds so well to your touch and style! :(

    A couple of months ago I dropped by Atlanta Bass Gallery and was just knocked out by an Elrick gold series 5 that I played there. I found a nice flamed maple top Elrick at GGuitars and couldn't resist. I love the neck profile and the 3/4" string spacing. Great slap bass and at 7 lbs. really takes a load of my shoulder! :D
