Ellis F5 Special (brand new, slight shop wear)
A masterpiece of a mandolin from Austin's own Tom Ellis. Every detail of this instrument has been meticulously and deliberately honed to perfection in aesthetics, construction, and sound. The balance and power that this mandolin has is arguably the best there is.
Adirondack top, Sugar maple back/sides/neck, gold Waverly tuners, gold engraved James tailpiece, 1-1/8" bone nut, custom Ellis made ebony bridge, custom ebony pickguard, triple bound top/back/sides/neck/headstock/pickguard, Ellis' proprietary "Bella" pearl headstock inlay, radiused fretboard, ebony endpin with pearl dot, pearl dot position markers. Comes with a custom fit black Calton case.
This mandolin has some very light shop wear, extremely minor and very hard to notice unless scrutinized closely, but it's there nonetheless. We have received permission from Ellis to discount the price by 10% from $12,500 to $11,250. It is brand new and still comes with it's lifetime warranty. To our local customers: This mandolin is not on the wall. Feel free to ask to see it if you stop by.
