Description

Here we have a Tom Ellis F style Mandolin in Highly Figure Maple and Sitka Spruce. Tom is widely regarded as one of the best Mandolin Luthiers in the world, If you are a bluegrass mandolin player you know Toms name and his instruments. This F style is easily one of the nicest sounding and playing mandolins we have had, it has plenty of tone and chop to cut through a heavy bluegrass mix, but it is also sweet and excels at solo work. There is little doubt after playing this mandolin that Tom Ellis is a master Luthier, this instrument is flawless in every aspect from construction to finish, a true masterpiece.

I don't play Mandolin much, but this Ellis F-style makes me want to put the guitar down and just work on my Mandolin chops for awhile. The tone is bright and warm, like a spring morning, this is an inviting instrument.
 
Gorgeous mandolin with lots or tone and punch. One of the better hand made mandolins I've seen.
