Elmore James only knew one lick, but you had the feeling that he meant it. – Frank Zappa
Presenting the Elmore, a resonator guitar (yes, you read that right) inspired by its namesake.
Don’t let the clean face of this guitar fool you because the soul of this resonator resides within. A combination Jasper’s patented body design and the L.R. Baggs Anthem SL acoustic pickup and mic system puts this resonator at an entirely new level. It’s time for you to mean it too.
See Justin Johnson’s demo and review of the Elmore here.
