Now available direct from Elrick Bass Guitars !!
The award winning New Jazz Standard bass is the first model in the new Expat Series of instruments fromElrick Bass Guitars, Ltd.
Although the Expat Series of instruments is not produced in house, they are manufactured to the same high quality standard embodied by all US made Elrick basses. In order to ensure the quality of all Expat Series bass guitars, we have partnered with the finest manufacturer of musical instruments in Europe. Elrick Bass Guitars hand selects and supplies much of the lumber, as well as the majority of materials and components used in the manufacture of the Expat NJS, including the same US made Hipshot hardware and Bartolini pickups / electronics found on US Elrick basses.
This partnership also makes it possible for us to offer a feature often requested on New Jazz Standard basses, a lacquer finish. Because of the high cost of lacquer finishes on US models, this may be the greatest value added feature found on the Expat NJS.
