I'm new to the club. Join last week. I present you my Elan 5.
Elan 5 strings, narrow neck.
I bought it new in 1989 at Steve's; in toronto. I'm the original and only owner.
Serial num: 88H5062 date: 9-9-88
- Two-tone burl walnut top
- Maple body
- Neck fully laminated purple heart,maple.
- Chrome GOTOH tuners
- Brass bridge and bird tailpiece
- P and J pick ups. 3 knobs 1 q switch.
Followed me on the road for 15 years, never failed me. Solid and fast, infinit sustain. No slapping & poppin on that thing though. D-E-A-D-G. Killer-D. I'm ''still'' running it through a Yamaha PB-1 with a bryston amp and a hartke 4X10. (if it works, don't try to fix it)

Beautiful Elan, Michel! The burl is gorgeous, and, while I definitely love the accent lams in most Alembics, the look of Elan models such as yours, with the top wood just sitting on the body -has it's own minimalistic beauty.
It's awesome, and it's nice to see someone who's still happily married to their first Alembic!
Thanks for sharing the pictures!
