This is back for sale because the buyer did not pay. So:

 

Elrick Platinum E-volution SC 5 from 2002 

Specs:

- Body: swamp ash

- Top: buckeye burl

- Neck: maple

- Fretboard: (I think) Macassar ebony. Can be Santos rosewood (Pau Ferro) too. I saw on Elrick's internet site that some of the basses have this kind of fretboard and it looks very similar (colour and grain). Anyway... sounds great, I think this is more important.

- Hipshot A-Style bridge

- String spacing: 19 mm now, but can be adjusted + -

- Electronics: Aguilar OBP-3 - 18V. Push/pull volume for active/passive, balance, bass (40Hz), mids (push/pull for 400/800 Hz), treble (6.5 KHz), two switches for serial/parallel/single coil for each pickup

Hiscox hardcase included!

Price 2850 euro + shipping! No trades!

Strange that it hasn’t sold yet since the starting price is good .. I own one Expat 4 stringers and it is by far the lightest bass I’ve ever played with a very well made neck and a comfortable ergonomics .. as stated previously, if this one was a 4 stringers I wouldn’t have hesitated to buy it !

Last week was "sold", but the buyer did not send the money and now is back for sale. Indeed is an amaizing bass with nice craftsmanship, great woods and tone.

I can't believe it's not sold yet. I'm not saying this just because we are old friends, but this bass is amazing. It was mine too (of course! :D), I recorded a metal album and I played old disco, pop, funk, rock stuff with it, with no correction, on the passive mode only. Very versatile, good for everything. I remember I removed the batteries to have a killswitch in that push-push vol pot. Yes, push-push, not push-pull. Great stuff!

GLWTS!
