2018 Ellis F5 Special in excellent condition. What very few signs of prior use there are require close scrutiny to notice.

This instrument is an absolute work of art, both sonically and aesthetically. Big, broad tonal spectrum with a rich low end and crystal clear trebles. Incredibly balanced from string to string as well as up and down the entire fretboard. It responds beautifully to just the slightest touch and maintains its incredible tone when played with a hard attack. Four string chords ring out each note evenly with the rich overtones of each string equally present.

This one owner mandolin has been meticulously cared for and just received a full professional set up to Ellis workshop specifications. It plays easily in all positions with a low action and no issues whatsoever. At the time it was ordered, Ellis installed a K&K internal pickup and the mandolin sounds wonderful amplified and is surprisingly true to its beautiful acoustic voice.

Adirondack spruce top, Sugar maple back/sides/neck, one piece back, varnish finish, ebony fretboard with pearl position markers, fully bound in triple binding, ebony triple bound pickguard, "Diamond Wire" pearl headstock inlay, gold Waverly tuners with pearl buttons, gold engraved James tailpiece, gold EVO frets, Ellis made full contact ebony bridge with gold wheels, radiused fretboard, 1-1/8" bone nut. Comes with an Austin made Calton case, also in excellent condition.
