Pava Knezevic has built quite a resume for herself over the last decade, developing her instrument building skills first with Collings and then Ellis mandolins.  It is from inside the Ellis mandolin shop that Pava is producing these fine instruments.  Cleanly built with attentive workmanship, this Pava A5 is a really responsive mandolin, with a sweet high response, strong lows and a great overall balance.  It has a carved Adirondack spruce top and carved maple back and sides with some very nice figure.
