It's obvious you missed this one because you were stunned by the beauty of your awesome Seismic Bass. :-) (and busy playing her)
Thanx guys! I cant wait to secure her into my clutches :-)

fc-

Glad you grabbed this one- I meant to email you to make sure you saw it (as a fellow Elan fan), but just didn't get around to it.

Glad to see it's going to a good home.

Thanx!

@ Mica: I can faintly see some numbers on my '87 Spoiler (after some oil on the fretboard) My guess would be 87S47** I can't see the last two numbers or USA, there is a line after the "7" could be an 1...

Hey Flip, nice score!

My 88 Spoiler is S/N 4828, and it was born in March, so 47** seems to be right for 87.
