We wish that everyone had the opportunity to personally come in to see and play this mandolin. The photos can't do it justice at all, and the TONE! It's just so hard to describe without gushing so we will just say it is all there: volume, clarity, balance, nuance, responsiveness, depth, punch, finesse, and power. There is nothing this mandolin cannot do in the right hands, and of course look spectacular doing it.

Ellis' "special grade" woods, Adirondack spruce top, Sugar maple back/sides/neck, varnish finish, fully bound (top, back, sides, neck, headstock) in triple binding, tapered varnish speed neck, gold Waverly tuners w/ebony buttons, gold engraved custom James tailpiece, Ellis' custom "Deco" pearl headstock inlay and headstock shaping, Ellis made full contact ebony bridge w/gold wheels, ebony fretboard with pearl block position markers, triple bound ebony pick guard, ebony endpin with pearl eye, gold EVO frets, radiused fretboard, 1-1/8" nut width.

Comes with a custom Calton case made specifically for Ellis and bearing his logo. Note to our local customers: to preserve the brand new condition of this instrument it is not on the showroom wall. Please inquire in-store or make a phone appointment.
