Ellis A-5 Deluxe

Sold. Please inquire for next available!


Brand new Ellis A5 Deluxe, fresh from their Austin-based workshop! Standard features for this model include an Adirondack Spruce top, exquisitely figured maple back, sides, and neck, and Varnish finish. Ellis mandolins offer more of that woody 'chop' prized among bluegrass players, but they maintain a sweetness and clarity unheard of in other mandolins in this price point. This instrument is particularly responsive and open-sounding, with a great combination of punch and warmth (we're told Mr. Ellis himself was a big fan of its voice). Retail price includes Calton Case and lifetime warranty from Ellis.

*Pictured instrument is in stock. Video shows a previously sold model with identical specs.
