Would you use Elastilon for 3/4" hardwood on concrete instead of nailing on a plywood subfloor?

I would not glue solid 3/4 hardwood to a slab. You need to install a subfloor over the concrete first. Your other option would be to use engineered hardwood floor and us a urethane base adhesive like Titebond 811.

You would not typically glue 3/4" hardwood to concrete. There are a few manufacturers out there that will warranty this installation with the proper glue, moisture tests and area (areas of high humidity bad) and none i know of would have a product over 2 3/4" wide. To properly install over concrete you should use an engineered wood, moisture test and use the proper adhesive based on the wood and the moisture testing.
