This A-5 Player was made by Pava Knezevi in the Tom Ellis workshop in Austin,Texas. It’s a cosmetically plainer version of her standard models, but all of the woods are A-list throughout. And while this mandolin has less binding on the neck and headstock it still has the great tone and playability we have come to expect from Pava’s mandolins. The top is carved Adirondack spruce and the back and sides are figured maple. This mandolin is in excellent cosmetic and structural condition. The frets show a tiny amount of wear but they have lots of life left in them. There are a few minor signs of having been played, but they are so light they don’t show up in our photos. Include a nice fiberglass case.
