This is mandolin making at it's finest. The Twin Point Special from Ellis Mandolins offers a rich and sweet tone that sustains nicely. This is still loud enough for bluegrass, but can fit in just as well at a classical recital, a jazz program, or Irish session. The back is a fantastic cut of one piece curly maple. It also boasts a fully bound top, back, fretboard, pickguard and headstock with an abalone Diamond Wire inlay design. This mandolin was pampered and shows very little play-wear. It includes an ebony arm rest with a carpenter mount, as well as a very nice Hisscox hard shell case.
