Elfin
My most popular shape - the Elfin is a slightly-downsized take on the popular "Singlecut" style, originally pioneered by Fodera Guitars and Kenneth Lawrence.

This compact-bodied shape is shortened, for full access to all 24 frets. The shape 'hugs' the player and nestles into a very comfortable playing position, standing or seated.

The extended upper bout supports the neck heel further than a usual double-cutaway body, allowing more contact between body and neck, and making the neck more rigid by shortening the unsupported section. A more rigid neck translates into a faster, more responsive attack, longer sustain, and deeper bass.

The size also makes this model well-suited for heavier, denser body woods such as Hard Ash, heavier Walnut, and even Maple, allowing the player access to the tones of those woods without the excessive weight.

Available in 4, 5, and 6 strings.

Elfin 5-string - English Maple top
This lovely Elfin 5 has a top-shelf 'fiddleback' English maple top. This material is beautiful for its deep, even flame figure, and for its very pale whitish color, offset beautifully by the black hardware and 2-tone Katalox fingerboard.

The body is a thicker-than-usual piece of medium-density walnut, which gives this bass a deep, rich, and authoritative sound with a very fast and strong attack.

Citron humbucking pickups and an Aguilar 2-band EQ translate the bass' natural resonance into a full and present plugged sound with lots of flexibility.

The 2-tone Katalox fingerboard is dressed up with the 'deco' side dot markers for a touch of flash.
