Gibson F5 Master Model 1973 Gloss Tobacco Sunburst

Sorry, this listing has ended.

Ended!

The Gibson Master Model F-5 is the definitive F Style Mandolin used by countless greats from Bluegrass to Rock and Roll.

This beautiful and fine sounding 1973 Gibson F-5 Master Model Mandolin is gorgeous in a Tobacco Sunburst with a flamed maple back. Binding is beautifully contrasted to mandolin in a deep vintage hue. Mandolin is in wonderful condition for its vintage, and has been well protected in its hard shell case.

Instrument sounds good for a 70's Gibson, plays well and is set up with low action. Could use some adjustments. Features beautiful inlay work on fret board, and headstock and wonderful craftsmanship. Frets have plenty of life. There are some small cracks that are stable and no longer than 1 inch. Comes with original pick-guard and hardware which are deteriorating, and original hard shell case in EXC condition.

This one needs very little love to be a solid player and a great investment!

PLEASE READ:
*Binding has collapsed/chunked out in a 1cm area on the cutaway. Easily cut out and replaced and matched as it is ONE PIECE.  See last photo...Does not affect playability, and the binding around it is stable in case you decide to fix with a filler compound.
