Two beautiful Elans on Yahoo Auction

Both look like modified tremolo models with middle pickup and FRT on the first one.

I couldn't resist and bought the purple one. Just arrived from Japan, but I can't pick it up until tomorrow. I believe this is very rare violet blue sunburst color. Also, trem + middle PU look factory to me so maybe this is one-off or ElanIII prototype possibly? Will inspect more closely once its in my hands.

yeah -- arrived super quick in fact! I've been out of town though so haven't had much chance to play with it but so far looks and feels awesome. As far as I can tell it all looks factory, so possibly a custom II or prototype III with the floyd and mid pup? but I need to inspect futher to be sure. If it's aftermarket they did a great job.

Also, where do you find the serials on these typically? I'll try and grab some info for the database next time I have it out.

Thanx!

Serials tend to be on the back of the headstock, but sometimes also at the bottom of the body near the strap button.
