Hi everyone, just a quick hello. I'm a little slow on the uptake here. I've owned my '90 Elan Plus since '93. I purchased the bass from a Latin American doctor who never played it out. It was one of the Chuck Levin's Washington Music pluses (Mica - were they all?)Needless to say the bass is awesome!
I'm glad to finally join up with the discussion groups - I've been enjoying reading all about the history of the Elan Plus and am really pleased at how it has kept its value!
I'll try and get a picture of the bass up soon.

PS Keith H. I don't think you'll have to ever worry about being out numbered by Olie's.
Holy, Rollie, Olie.

Yeah, Keith, Washington Music sold alot of Elan Plus basses. Some other dealers got them as well, but Levin's really adopted them as their main Alembic model for a while.
