Nice Elan Ferruccio. I love the top wood. Oh, and welcome to the club from Scotland. I think there's at least one other member in Italy.

Hi Ferrucio,

Here's what I found in the instrument file for your Elan:

top: Walnut "Make the wood special" noted
accent: none
body: Maple
neck: Maple and Purpleheart
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid oval inlays
pickups: AXY56
controls: volume, filter, Q-switch, pan, mono output
originally made for: New Kary, Milan as a custom order
birthday: July 7, 1989

New kary was our distributor in Italy when this bass was made. They ordered it for a special high-profile player named Enzo. The plate was engraved "For Enzo" originally.
