Pava Knezevic has built quite a resume for herself over the last decade, developing her instrument building skills first with Collings and then Ellis mandolins. Cleanly built with attentive workmanship, this pre-owned Pava A5 Pro is a really responsive mandolin, with a sweet high response, strong lows and a great overall balance. It has a carved Adirondack Red Spruce top and Red Maple back and sides, and beautifully bound with koa. Shellac finish & a tasteful "Iris" peghead inlay complete the package! It's in the same condition as the day it left our shop last summer. Super clean!
