2003 Gibson F5G Mandolin

(Serial No. 31029060) Excellent minus condition, gloss sunburst 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, a 1 1/8 nut on the flat ebony fingerboard, tone bar bracing, and a hand-tuned tone chamber. Very clean mandolin overall. The treble extention on the fretboard has been professionally removed to allow access to the sweet spot for picking. Very good sounding mandolin with good response all across the strings and up and down the neck. Just set up by my luthier. The mandolin plays like silk and has the sound you look for in Gibson F5. Comes with the clean original hardshell case.
