    Re: Old Ellis F5 vs New Ellis F5

    #464 was the subject of a recent Facebook build thread. I believe this is either the most recent at TME or the NAMM mandolin.

    Re: How Much Better Does It Get

    Oh yea. I played that one and a matching mandola at Fiddler's Green when they were hanging about. Really impressive instruments.

    Mandolin --> SM57Beta --> House PA

    Small house PA with no monitors

    If Crusher is on the list of availables, I'll stand in that line. Best instrument (of any fiddle, guitar, mandolin, etc) I've ever played.

    Re: Ellis A5?

    If you truly love F style bodies, then it's possible you will never be completely happy with an A. That being said, you can readily find a used Ellis A in your budget. They are phenomenal...

    It was at Carter's for a while last year. When I saw it and played it, I was waiting on a ride to the airport and didn't have a chance to talk to Walter about it. By the time I got him on the...

    I recently got a mandolin, that as it turns out, I had tried to buy two other previous times either to not get the deal done or to miss it by a couple of days.

    Re: Why no narrow nut options?

    It still is :)) It is just a hair over 1", but the neck shape is very abrupt from the fingerboard down to the V.

    I recently picked up a mod 3 with Gil's standard nut, right at 1 1/16" and the...

    I was of the same opinion. The Gilchrist really sounded great in his hands, particularly the WGBH Live at Fraser video. But, I saw them a couple of weeks ago in Houston at the Heights Theater. ...

    Re: Barnes Walsh Gordy

    They're all great musicians, and I appreciated how forward in the mix the mandolin was. What a strong chop and very direct, just a great sound.
