With a master's touch and an artist eye for detail, Tom Ellis uses his over 40 years of experience in instrument building to create heirloom quality works of art. He has spent a great deal of time studying every aspect of the mandolin. It has only been through this research, that he has been able to acquire the best materials and crafts people to help with the process.
Ellis mandolins are built one-at-a-time. Furthermore, Tom personally does all the hand carving, graduating, neck shaping and final setup. In modern times, it could be done differently. However, Tom insists on quality that he can be proud of for generations to come.
