A great mandolin from the Tom Ellis workshop in Austin, made by Pava Knezevic. All the woods are A-list throughout, with a shellac finish and hinged-cover cast brass tailpiece that looks convincingly like the Gibson originals (but is far better functionally). Another improvement is that the fingerboard has a slight radius. This has been in the Bay Area since it was new and shows only light fret wear. A few very light scuffs, a couple of barely noticeable little dings, but that's it. An excellent sounding and playing F-5 in nearly new condition. Original case as shown.
