My new girlfriend arrived on Thursday and she's a beaut! 1989 Elan 4 Fretless 89H5622 The body and neck are maple with a really cool red-wine stain w/ glossy finish. The color actually changes with the amount of light available. I got some good shots in the sun today. The Elan has J-style pickups and LED's at the 12 position. The hardware is chrome plated brass. She was adopted from Grovelines - Michael. I believe ElwoodBlue once "dated her".

I did get one fair shot of the whole body. It's a little dark, but this shows how the color changes.

WOW - I switched out the half-rounds for some DR Hi-Beams and OMGosh - the Elan CAME ALIVE!!! I can't believe how many different tones / sounds this bass can make. My fretless Jazz sounds good, but the variety of sounds is limited. The fade, filter and Q-switch have so many variations. And, my GK Microbass MB150 has so many more options. It's amazing how a little adjustment can affect the sound as much as it does. Now the hard part, what sound/settings do I use? This is going to be fun!!!

Hands down - the best looking 'red' instrument that I have ever seen.

I think this color was officially called "cranberry" if it matches what's on my screen.
All I know is that it looks mighty fine with the shiny chrome hardware!

She's in good hands Elwood (and Michael ;o). Lately, she's the bass I grab for playing at church or around the house. It's great for the trio work we are now doing, which is keys, guitar and bass. Mellow songs sound great w/ fretless.
And the color is probably a little more toward the purple side than what's shown in the pics. Definitely one of the prettiest finishes that I have ever seen on a bass or guitar.
