Ellis Twin Point #453
This is our first time to have one of Tom Ellis' new two point mandolins and WOW what an amazing instrument! The design is extremely elegant and displays Ellis' masterful artistry in a completely new and unique way. Of course, as with all Ellis mandolins, the tone is beautifully complex with perfect balance and clarity. This one seems to lean a little bit more in the darker/richer realm but is very similar in tone to his F5 models. Adirondack top, Sugar maple back (one piece) and sides, gold Waverly tuners with pearl buttons, gold engraved James tailpiece, gold EVO frets, varnish finish, 1-1/8" bone nut, fern out of flower pot headstock inlay. Comes with a Hiscox hardshell case.
