2020 Pava F, Torrified Top, Wide Nut, Block Inlays

Photo for Ad 167508

At age 71 and with arthritis issues in my hands I am reluctantly offering my 2020 Torrified Top, Wide Nut Pava F for sale. Purchased new by me from Dennis at The Mandolin Store in November of 2020. With similar hand issues a year ago I sold my two exceptional Pava A style mandolins. Missing mandolin and feeling better towards the end of 2020 I let my heart get ahead of logic and purchased this wonderful Pava F. My pain has resurfaced, I can't play, and I really think I have to give up mandolin for good this time.

Exceptional sound, here's the video from James at The Mandolin Store:

As you can tell, I’m a huge fan of the work coming out of the Ellis shop. I believe Pava mandolins to be the best value, price to quality, for exceptional instruments in the Mandolin world today. I paid $5,550, the mandolin is “as new,” and I will accept $4850 shipped in original Golden Gate Tweed hard case. I also have a new, unused Hoffee Case available, with Thinsulate insulation and twist latches, that I will sell for an additional $850 (I paid $1,020). Also have Hoffee’s case cover available, also unused, for $175. I paid $200 for the cover.
