2002 Gibson F5G Mandolin

(Serial No. 5934109) Near mint condition. Excellent structural condition showing no playing wear, gloss sunburst ice tea finish with a brown back and sides. An F5G is built the same as the F5 Fern, just not as much trim, with a single bound top and unbound back and headstock. It still has all the design features that give the F5 its legendary tone, including a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint, solid flamed maple neck, sides and back, solid spruce top, top bound only, a 1 1/16 nut on the flat ebony fingerboard, tone bar bracing, and a hand-tuned tone chamber. This instrument was built in Nashville during the second year of Charlie Derrington. Excellent, powerful sounding mandolin with good tone and volume all across the strings and up and down the neck. The mandolin has just been set up by my luthier. The instrument plays like silk and has the signature Gibson chop - excellent bluegrass sound! Comes with the original fitted TKL hardshell case.
