I was fortunate to purchase an Elan last summer. Absolutely love it.
Someone take this off the market and ease my mind. Walnut Elan

BassNW has four used Alembics for sale.

They're good people, so I hear. That's where my buddy got his '94 Epic that he adores.

They are indeed good folk. I got a Hamer 12 and Epifani UL 902c head from them. Very easy to deal with, friendly and good service.

For those interested there's a similar bass in the Bass Gallery in the UK. I believe it's around 1500UK.

Very nice looking Elan.

Very unusual strap pin placements.

Hi I rang the shop yesterday and had a chat with them about the bass. It's a commission sale for a customer.

Probably a previous owner was a left hander. Just a thought.

That bass was on craigslist earlier this year, where it was first noticed by a Club member; it later sold on eBay, probably to the person consigning it at Bass NW, and at a much lower price.
