The Custom Shop F-5G mandolin is the modern version of Gibson's iconic mandolin design tuned to the needs of today's players. With an unbound ebony fingerboard and a 14-degree fingerboard radius — not to mention no pickguard and a shorter fingerboard extension — its player-friendly specs give you all the playability you expect from an instrument crafted in the legendary Gibson Custom Shop. But that's only part of what makes this mandolin so wonderful.
The neck and body are also worth noting, as they're made from figured red maple, expertly carved and coupled with a Sitka spruce top for optimal acoustic response. This is a top-of-the-line instrument perfect for experienced musicians who value high quality craftsmanship above all else. From its meticulous construction to its refreshed specs and contours, the F-5G from Gibson Custom Shop is sure to be your go-to favorite as you create years' worth of music with it.
Finished in Dark Burst gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, a hardshell case is included.
