Elrick New Jazz Expat Series Bass Walnut Stain, 2012


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here we have an Elrick New Jazz Expat Series 4-string bass featuring a Swamp Ash body with Walnut stain, Maple neck with zero fret and block position markers.

Rob Elrick has been building high end bass guitars since the 1990s. To make his designs more accessible, Elrick Expat and E-Volution models are built in the Czech Republic using US components.    These are shipped back to Elrick’s shop in Chicago, Illinois where they receive inspection, final assembly and setup.   

This Elrick Expat New Jazz 4-string bass features a swamp ash body with a gloss walnut stain lacquer finish, a 3-piece, 24 fret plus zero fret, satin finish maple neck with maple fingerboard , Hipshot tuners, Elrick bridge, and a pair of Bartonlini jazz bass pickups with active and passive circuits.  The front of the headstock is colour matched to the body.  The neck joint uses six bolts and is very sturdy.    Controls include Volume, Blend,  Hi, Mid and Bass controls.  The volume control is a push/pull type, switching between active and passive, and the Mid control uses the same part to switch between 250Hz and 800Hz  centers.     There is also a clear pickguard.

This bass is in overall good condition with expected play wear,  largely in the form of a few small dings around the edges.   Fret wear is light, and the bass is strung with round wound strings. 

The original zippered hard shell case is included.
