Exceptional Pava F5 Pro Fern just in to the shop on consignment! This beauty was built as a showpiece for the NAMM trade show; and upon close inspecition, it is easy to tell it was given some extra attention and care. Built in Tom Ellis's workshop, the finish work, wood choice, and tonal characteristics are all reminiscent of Ellis engraved instruments. The sound is powerful, yet silky with tons of shimmering overtones. If you have been eyeing an Ellis mandolin, but are intimidated by the price, this is the one. Priced with an Ameritage case. 

On consignment.
