    I'm selling a few basses and this elfin is next. It has a audere classic 4 band preamp in it.
    More on this from the ad.

    T k1. k4. k2. k5. 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. Gold fret wire and no inlays with katalox sap wood fretboard

    Aguilar pickups. Comes with a bag. 1750 CONUS
