    Beautiful mandolins, I'd love to take one of these for a whirl, but I'd be too afraid to scratch it, I'd end up with one less kidney just to pay for the repairs

    I have two Ellis mandolins , one an A5 and the other a F5. Fantastic workmanship and sound ! Never seen or heard a bad one !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    That 2 point is a nice looking mandolin. A little too bling’d out for my pocketbook, but beautiful to look at.
