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 6-string, fretted
This Elfin Hollowbody 6-string is designed to split the sonic difference between fretted electric bass and upright bass.

The shorter 33" scale makes for quick and easy playability and a sweet sounding upper register, without any loss of presence or power on the low B.

Mahogany back/sides and a reclaimed redwood top yield a warm, balanced clarity that lets the whole range sing - from lowest to highest notes, the bass delivers the throaty and musical attack and natural decay that only a true hollowbody instrument can produce.
