Im on the hunt for my unicorn!! Im looking to purchase an Elan 4 in a flame top or solid color. P/J would be my first choice, but not opposed to the Humbuckers. Please contact me on here, or by email at joewesolowski@yahoo.com

My Elan 4 is for sale, but I think it would be way too expensive for US buyers... (would be aprox $2500 incl shipping)
If interested, there's a link in my profile (emailaddress can also be found there)

Here is one also on sale on the UK Basschat forum.

To echo what FC stated it may also be too expensive for a US buyer but at least you have options. :-)

Wow, how about sharing a few more photos... Sorry for your problems... Is that toggle a "Q" switch or for LEDs?

if your hand injury isn't permanent then don't sell. (I wouldn't sell it anyway) You just have to alter your playing style. Wait!!!! There is a book out for bassists by a bassist/physical therapist & I believe that it's called " Physical Therapy for Bass players Hands" (or something like that). Once again, really take your time and consider altering your technique because "some bass playing is better than NO bass playing"!!!!!
