Pava Mandolins, from the shop of Tom Ellis, represent the best value in a handmade American mandolin today! The satin-finished A5 is the base model, and it's made no differently than an Ellis A5--although the wood grade, cosmetic stylings and varnish finish of the Ellis are big upgrades, the Pava features that same woody punch Ellis mandolins are known for. This ultra-handsome Sunburst A5 features clean-as-a-whistle craftsmanship, and a warmth of tone you'll not encounter in any other similarly-priced instrument. A fantastic buy for anyone interested in upgrading to a professional mandolin! Priced with hard case.

*Please note: pictured instrument is in stock. Video sample shows the same model in a different finish.
