Pava Satin Sunburst F5 #314
Just hand delivered from our good friends down the road at the Pava/Ellis workshop! An absolutely stunning F5 mandolin that is sure to please the most discerning of players and collectors alike, this mandolin is right in line with instruments costing more than double it's price. Incredibly balanced from string to string and up and down the fretboard, crystal clear note definition, great volume, lots of sustain and ring but still has a wonderful woody/organic sweetness to the tone. The workmanship is flawless and the instrument is just as beautiful as it sounds. Perfectly blended sunburst over the Adirondack top, highly flamed one piece maple back (brown stain), ivoroid w/b/w top binding, ebony pickguard, Gotoh tuners, engraved "James" tailpiece, 1-1/8" nut, shellac finish. Comes with a Superior deluxe hardshell case.
