We're excited to offer this heirloom-quality F5 mandolin from the workshop of Tom Ellis. Cosmetics aside, an Ellis F5 Reserve offers the sort of tonal sophistication and workmanship a discerning player demands. Many great-looking mandolins built with quilted maple will hypnotize onlookers with the three-dimensional nature of the wood's figure ... but they sound a little timid. Not this one! Depth of tone, harmonic richness, sustain, power and pop--not only will this instrument record like a dream, it'll more than hold its own in a loud bluegrass jam. As for its looks? Well ... we're inclined to say there isn't a more finely built mandolin out there. From the picture-perfect tones of its sunburst, to the artistry of the inlay work, to Weldon Lister's engraving work on the tailpiece ... "flawless" just about sums it up. Have a look through our photo gallery for some detailed shots, and give us a call if you'd like an in-hand description. Priced with new Calton Case.
