    I wanted to post this thread to see how much of a minority Elrick players are every where I play I run into bass players who have no clue what kind of bass it is. I just want to start a support group of sorts for all us Elrick players. People always talk about their Foderas I want to do the same with the Elicks I have a Evo-gold 4 that has been set up by Matt Artinger of Artinger guitars this bass kicks ass and I would not trade it for the world. So if you feel the same lets stand up and show your Elrick.
    Peace

    wow you got this bass???????

    man if it's the one Tumbao owned, it's not a domestic tulipwood body, it's black limba. Gorgeous bass and gorgeous picture.

    Peace,

    Mark, this IS the one for sure. Not two basses like this one. Definitely black limba body, no tulipwood here.

    Peace,
    JP

    PS: I always loved this bass. Please offer it some black switches and some macassar ebont THG knobs and it will be perfect. :D

    Thanks for the info, JP!!! I'm surprised.. I always thought limba

    Wow! Lots of awesome looking tops! Here's a pisture of my Gold series Standard 5. Traditional flame top but man does it look deep in the right lighting! And definitely a player! ;)

    Thanks! Elrick comes up with such an assortment of nice tops!

    Tritone,
    Great looking bass! I'm trying to adjust to a Rosoce 6 and seeing your 7 string makes me feel better! :) How's the Elrick 7 play?

    Thanks JOME77! Believe or not, the hardest thing to adjust to was just having 2 extra strings. And believe me, it was an adjustment!! :eek:

    Comfort-wise, I really enjoy the wide neck, and I have it set up with a mediumish action. It's not nearly as cumbersome as I thought it was going to be. The bass itself is extremely light, so I think that aids in its playablilty too. This is my main bass now, and I only occasionally play my Laklands at this point.
