Ellis A5 A Style Mandolin

The Ellis A5 is an A-style mandolin with oval sound hole. It is individually hand-built using traditional materials & “Old World” craftsmanship.

Tom Ellis of Ellis Mandolins, builds one of a kind, hand made mandolins in Austin, Texas.  With a master’s touch and an artist eye for detail, Tom uses his 35 years of experience in instrument building, to create heirloom quality works of art.

He has spent a great deal of time studying every aspect of the mandolin. It has only been through this research, that he has been able to acquire the best materials and crafts people to help with the process.

Ellis mandolins are built one-at-a-time.  Furthermore, Tom personally does all the hand carving, graduating, neck shaping and final setup.

This fully hand-carved instrument is handcrafted with a solid Maple back and sides, and an Adirondack Spruce top. Additional appointments include maple neck, dot-inlaid ebony fingerboard, adjustable bridge and heavy cast tailpiece. This one looks stunning in Ellis hand rubbed oil varnish finish.

As mandolins go, this Ellis is at the top of the game -- with impressive playability and tone. It's a fantastic example of a high quality hand made mandolin.

This Mandolin is in excellent condition with only a few minor scratches. It has very minor fretwear and includes the original case.
