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 Pava A5 is a really responsive mandolin, with a sweet high response, strong lows and a great overall balance. It has a carved Red spruce top and beautifully flamed maple back & sides. Shellac finish & tasteful "Rose" peghead inlay. Priced with hard case!
