Just added this beautiful Ellis to my stable. I have to say I'm truly lucky to have such great mandos to play with. Sorry for the so-so picture quality, but I did what I could with my phone camera.

From left to right are a Weber Custom Elite, Darren Craig Mandola, and Ellis F-5 Special.

Thought y'all might like to take a look. If you're ever in my neck of the woods (Houston), come on over and check them out.

A few YouTube clips of the two mandolins are here (pardon the poor sound through my cheap laptop microphone). http://www.youtube.com/user/Jollyboy11/videos

Thanks Jim. Here's a few pictures of the back of the Ellis. These are from Elderly when it was on consignment there a while back.
