I'm bumping this up, if that's allowed and I'll say that I'll accept very sensible offers.

Sorry for being so unspecific in my previous post! I would like to know the keyboard layout - treble and bass side.

Been wanting a new D/G Lilja III with 12 basses and flat keyboard for a while, and your Elene III might be a interesting short cut for me. But I would need to sell of a box to afford buying yours right now on the spot, so … :-\

Hi Hasse

The keyboard layout was designed with the intention to enhance the home keys of D & G and to reduce the challenge of adapting from a 2 row to a 2.5 row. To facilitate this, I left the two main rows as they would be on a 4th button start 2 row so, as follows:

From 'chin' end, Push/Pull
G row: F/Eb, B/D, D/F#, G/A etc
D row: Bb/Ab, F#/A, A/C#, D/E etc

Half row:
E/F (low), C/D, E/F, Bb/Ab, C/D (high)

Basses (from 'knee' end):
G/D, C/C
D/A, Bmin/Emin
A/G, F#min/ F

Hope this helps,

Martin

Sorry, but I’ve been giving it some thought during the day, and the keyboard layout isn’t quite what I need, (even though the bass side isn't fare from what I had in mind). I think it might be better for me to eventually order a 12 bass Lilja III once I've raised the money.

So if anyone else is on the look out for a GREAT D/G box, this is it! :||:

I’ll be on my way to Melodeons in Wensleydale Friday the 20th.  I’d very much like to drop by to assess this if you’ve still got it then.  Please let me know if you’re willing.

Elderly amateur musician hoping to stave off dementia by learning to play the melodeon.  Just upgraded to a Tommy, also rather breathless G/C pokerwork and a G/C Benny.  Oh! And single row 2 stop Hohner in need of serious leak proofing.

More than willing Chris and, as far as I know, able. I'll PM you my address and mobile number.
