Brilliant A5 Deluxe from Ellis mandolins. Ten years young, this A has all of that punch, power, and rounded treble-note dulcet warmth that we have come to love and expect from Tom, Pava, and the team in Austin.
In many ways this is the benchmark for an excellent, small-shop A model mandolin: an impeccably well made, inspiring instrument that will easily cover a wide range of classic and especially contemporary styles.
Incidental fret wear and a couple fine marks; overall very good condition.
Priced with hard case.
