I've seen pictures of EV playing a Collings mandolin, so that would be my guess.

Does anyone make mandocellos anymore?
I'd really like one someday.

Santa Cruz makes a very nice one. Eastman makes one that is decent. Webber (the mandolin company, not the guitar company) makes one, too.

Those are the ones that I've played.

It sounds like a regular old mandolin (with annoying singing).
Gibson model K mandocellos from the 'teens/twenties are not that hard to come by, and many modern mandolin builders make them. I have mandolins and a mandola; would really like to complete the family someday myself.
