2016 TKD F5 Mandolin
(Serial No. 160190) Near mint condition. I bought this from the original owner, who traded it on a Martin guitar. Blonde hand rubbed oil finish with B/W/B and tortoise binding. Nicely flamed maple back and sides and solid spruce top, ebony fretboard and bridge. As I understand it, the instruments are assembled in China, and the the top is regraduated here in the US to give a better response. Nice attention to detail throughout. Has the traditional unbound ebony radiused fretboard, an adjustable truss rod, ebony bridge, and a 1 1/8 inch bone nut. Comfortable C shaped neck profile. Pearl logo in the peghead and antique bronze tuners with black buttons and a matching one-piece tailpiece. Shows no playing wear at all. Very good sounding mandolin with good response all across the strings and up and down the neck. Just set up by my luthier so the mandolin plays like butter and has an excellent bluegrass sound. Comes with the original shaped hard case.
