Wilkat Élan Basses:
These basses are offered in bolt - on, or neck through body construction. through body construction. They are protected with either a high gloss polyurethane coating, or a Danish oiled finish. There are two basic body styles currently available, but we offer all sorts of custom shapes, as well as more traditional designs, if desired. We prefer the beauty of natural richly grained wood. Highly figured woods add to the appeal of the instrument, and are carefully selected for their wonderful tonal qualities. We recommend the use of maple, purple heart and butternut. Alternative choices can be made, but it is difficult to improve on this combination. Among the advantages are: tonal resonance and response, ideal weight, strength, and stability. All of which result in a superb, finely crafted instrument, that is both rugged, and performance oriented. While purple heart wood reinforces the maple neck, we also use two-way adjustable truss rods to ensure proper string relief and low action can be attained.
