Rarely available, pre-owned Ellis F5 "Tradition" mandolin just into the shop for consignment! The Ellis "Tradition" is Tom's tribute to David Grisman's infamous 1922 F5 (aka "Crusher"). It harkens back to Loar-era instruments in looks and tone, featuring an elongated pickguard, darker tobacco sunburst, and a stripped down aesthetic channeling the greatest F5s of them all. This instrument, while pre-owned, remains in excellent condition. There's a small amount of tarnishing on the tailpiece (please see photos), but the surfaces of the mandolin are very clean. No significant fretwear. Powerful, dry voice that's well-suited for a bluegrass player but capable of making whatever you've got to give it sound great. Priced with Ellis-branded Calton Case.

The F5 "Tradition" was a limited edition when initially produced, and is not currently in production at Ellis Mandolins. On consignment.
