    I just picked up an Elrick Gold Standard 5 from Big Joe here on TB and I'm digging it bigtime. I haven't put it down long enough to get some good pictures yet. Everything I've heard about them seems to be true. Excellent workmanship, incredible action/playability, alot of balls tonewise and lightweight to boot. Let's see yours!

    Here's the old Bolt-On 6 that I traded for a Zon Sonus Special 6, kinda miss her from time to time, but the Zon suits me better..

    That's the one thing I'm afraid of-I've only owned 34" so far, so I hope I can adjust.

    That bass is just soooooo beautiful! I have a real hunger for an e-volution bolt on six. I've gotta have one!

    Nice couple of Elricks boys! I more impressed with mine each time I play it. Pics coming soon as I can figure out how to resize them.

    Just got back from a gig where I used my latest, the Platinum Hybrid 5 I got from LAG. Ran it and an Ash SC K5B Brubaker through the AMP BH-420 and my Nahas rig.

    Is there such a thing as too sweet?
    :D
