Product Description

Designed to the specifications of Lloyd Loar's original F-5 Master Model, the F-5L sets the standard by which other mandolins are judged. Gibson luthiers painstakingly handcraft the F-5 The Fern Mandolin to replicate the 1925 original notable for its abalone fern headstock inlay. It has a tuned parallel tone bar with a carved spruce top and maple back and sides to generate that world-famous tone. A sumptuous finish, hand-engraved gold-plated hardware, and triple binding all speak to its vintage pedigree. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
