2017 Pava Player A-5
Hot Blonde!

Poor man's Ellis, built by Pava Knezevic in the Ellis shop in Austin Tx. We hear that she's actually building the Ellis mandolins these days as well. Acquired in trade with another dealer, this is a brand new instrument, offered as pre-owned. It features a stunning blonde finish and one piece Maple back.

Specs; Adirondack Spruce top, flamed Maple one piece back, Maple sides and neck, blonde gloss lacquer finish and tortoise bound body. Radiused Ebony fretboard, parallel tone bars and nickel hardware includes cast Allen tailpiece and Gotoh tuning gears and Mother-of-Pearl script headstock inlay.

Very impressive sound, right out of the box. Dry and woody with plenty of pop. Perhaps not as deep sounding as an Ellis, but I don't know. Outstanding volume and a big bluegrass chop.

New condition without flaw or blemish.

Includes black Superior fiberglass case. Trades gladly considered on this fine made in America instrument.

Price: $2,599.95
