2008 Park Elan

2008 Park Elan

Shelley Park needs no introduction. Over the past two decades she has earned a reputation as one of the top makers of Selmer style guitars. Her guitars are known for their impeccable workmanship, aesthetic beauty, and warm satisfying tone. This guitar is no exception.

The Elan model features a short 640mm scale, 15 3/4 " lower bout, and a 4" body depth.  The top is spruce, the back and sides are made of solid Indian rosewood and the binding is maple. The neck is made of maple and has a two piece ebony spline. The ebony fingerboard has the modern, sleek look which is free of fingerboard markers, but does have side dots for positioning. Hardware includes a set of Schaller three on a plate tuners and a DR tailpiece.

This instrument has a warm, and balanced tone that makes it a great all around instrument. It's versatile sound makes it a capable lead and rhythm Gypsy jazz guitar, but it can also function well in other styles such as swing, modern jazz, and even folk. It projects nicely, and the short scale and low action allow for the smooth, easily playability that many of the long scale guitars lack.

This used guitar is in excellent condition with just few signs of wear. There is some pick wear on the top, a few small scratches and dings, and some moderate fret wear. This instrument is a nice deal as it would be over $4500 new.

This is the CASH price...add 3% if you'd like to pay with a credit card. 4% for International orders.
