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, "Rose" Spalted Maple top
This fretless Elfin 5-string is a perfect combination of exotic woods and a "less-is-more" electronic package.

The thick, lightweight African mahogany body, maple neck, and katalox fingerboard create a deep, rich, resonant, and responsive tone that reacts beautifully to the player's touch.

The spalted maple top is almost beyond description - an intricate network of fine, crisp black lines, mixed with natural color variations, creating hypnotic and intriguing patters. On the upper horn, a "rose" seems to bloom from the wood itself, giving this instrument a truly singular identity.

The single Citron pickup and passive volume control are deceptively simple but very powerful - every nuance and detail come through uncolored and unaltered. Many, many different tones are possible with this instrument, every one of them a true interaction between the hands, the strings, and the woods.
