hey all, while, i've long since been seduced by the Sadowsky side, i've recently been getting to know again my Elrick Classic Singlecut 5. truth be told, found it sittin' all its lonesome in my manhattan mini storage locker, wrapped in a plastic garbage bag, due its gig bag being relegated to one of my Sad's. had thought about selling it, but something just kept me back. so, after restringing it with a fresh set of Zon nickels i had lying around, and replacing the dying 9v, was greeted with some killer El tone! very growly, yet also highly articulate. and incredibly lightweight. easily the lightest bass i own. and while i thought i swore off "modern" looking basses for gigging, the elegant slope of the singlecut is still quite striking with its burled walnut top. then as i was posting my genial thoughts for my El, i realized there's been soooooo little Elrick talk 'round here. the fit, finish, elegant looks, and especially, the design of the neck thru is quite amazing, and yet, i remember not paying nearly as much as most other competitors. wassup? show your Elrick love! any pics? i'll be putting mine this weekend. btw, has anyone conversed with Rob? i'm thinking of sending back my El for a fret dressing to even up the ground down frets. heard he's a bit of a bass curmudgeon.
