Made in limited numbers in 2019, the Ellis F5 Tradition is the company's tribute to David Grisman's 1922 Loar F5 (aka "Crusher"). While Ellis mandolins are known for their rich voices, the Tradition is aimed at bluegrass players, with a drier sound and vintage-style appointments that blend in seamlessly in a 5-piece ensemble. This particular mandolin is just into the shop on trade -- and it remains in very good condition. While the finish retains its original luster, it's been played and sports a few minor dings and mild pickwear on the top near the treble-side F hole. The sound is bold and wide-open, with incredible power for a bluegrass player who wants to dig in. Priced with Calton case (Burgundy exterior, Gold interior).
