1 Bob Howard 8 months ago Well, the ELF is alive, strung up for the first time in years. It’s settling in and opening up it’s big, round sound. I’m surprised, really. I had this pegged as a lost cause a week ago. Now it’s got a great big, round voice, abetted by a TVJones T’Armond and a big comfy neck. What’s not to love. I tried a few bridges but, remarkably enough, it sounds and plays best with the Melita it came with, which needed some missing parts replaced and new graphite saddles.
