This 2017 Elkhorn F5 Artist is finished in a very nice sienna brown sunburst finish. The back, sides, and neck are made from heavily quilted maple with very large birdseye figure.

The Ebony peghead veneer is multiple bound with ivoroid binding. There is also an Ebony veneer on the back of the peghead. “Elkhorn” inlay at top in mother of pearl. Elaborate fern inlay in green abalone. Solid mother of pearl truss rod cover above a high-grade unbleached bone nut.

The Gabon Ebony fingerboard is multiple bound with accent line seen from the face. The fingerboard is radiused and is fretted with EVO frets. There are medium pearl dot inlays and dark side dot position markers. After the 17th fret, the fingerboard is scalloped. The fingerboard has an abbreviated double cut extension.

The neck is a modified “U” shape. The body has binding on the top and back, which is grained ivoried with black accent showing.

Two-piece ebony adjustable Loar style bridge. The very high-quality silver tailpiece is engraved with “Elkhorn”. Silver Waverly tuners with ebony buttons.

This is a wonderfully voiced mandolin. Comes with a hard shell case.
