Elfin Hollowbody
The Elfin Hollowbody bass is designed to bring true acoustic tone and feel to the electric player, in a compact, comfortable, and visually unique package.

The body is built entirely like an acoustic instrument, with steam-bent sides and 'floating', braced top and back. Traditional wooden binding and purfling details add the authentic touch. The bass side face binding includes an integrated arm bevel for added comfort.

The electronics package is simple yet powerful - a custom piezo crystal pickup in the wooden bridge, mixed with a slimline hum-canceling magnetic at the neck position. The pickups blend through an active onboard mixer preamp, with Volume, Blend, and Tone controls mounted on the face.

The combination of acoustic construction and full-range electronics delivers a huge range of tones, from "EBO-style" warmth and fatness to crystal-clear acoustic-style tones, as well as a very convincing "upright-bass" tone.

The 14" body width and 3" depth contribute air and depth to the tone while remaining comfortable, rugged, and travel-friendly. Because the Elfin Hollowbody is much smaller than other acoustic bass guitars, it is more resistant to feedback on loud stages.

No 'modeling' or emulation can truly and accurately reproduce the nuances of a true acoustic instrument. The Elfin Hollowbody delivers this touch-sensitive response and organic tone with no compromises.

Elfin Hollowbody 5, Violin Brown
This Elfin Hollowbody 5 captures all the elements of classic violin-family instruments - curly maple back and sides, spruce top, ebony fingerboard, and a rich brown tint that echoes vintage varnish finishes.

The ebony theme carries through to the bridge and binding/trim, which features an additional white maple purfling line to neatly accent the shapes and borders.

Deep, spacious bass and rich, growly midrange are this instrument's calling cards - through both the piezo and magnetic pickups, this bass has a tone that immediately conjures images of big, thick-sounding upright basses and airy acoustic bass guitars. Only a true hollowbody can deliver this - a solidbody will never get as close.
