What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

Weight: 7.6 lbs

If you're looking for versatility and playability together in concert, look no further than this German-made 5-string wonder. Uncasing this instrument, you will be immediately delighted at its lightweight body, and satin finish, making for a very comfortable instrument to play for hours and hours. The Delano pickups and 3-band active preamp will provide you the ability to dial in everything from classic Fender & Musicman sounds, bright, scooped funk tones, to the deepest subby dub sounds and everything in between. This bass is perfect for the working bass player who wants to cover it all with one constant companion. 

Manufacturer's Description from Other

The Elwood L is a real lightweight. The well thought design makes it a back-friendly work tool of the first class, especially designed for longer live gigs. The alder body is refined with selected flamed maple, walnut or amazaque tops.

Arbitrary inlays of mother of pearl, acrylic or wood make the instrument a personalized masterpiece. 21, 22 or 24 frets are available at a scale of 34".

The matched headstock was so revisited that it manages to save weight and work without string tree.
