Gibson F5L Fern made in 2005 and given to Walter Carter by Gibson for his years of service as Gibson's historian. This mandolin is in excellent condition with only light wear and comes with its original case and warranty card. 
The buyer will also receive a letter of authenticity from Walter Carter speaking to the origins of this mandolin as well as the original tailpiece cover and truss rod cover, both of which are engraved with Mr. Carter's name. The day I bought this mandolin, I played many of the instruments on hand at Carter's Vintage Guitars, including numerous Gibsons, a Dudenbostel, a Gilchrist, and several Gibson Loars. Believe me when I tell you that this mandolin outdid them will NOT be disappointed with its sound. Selling only within the United States. I will cover the cost of shipping and insurance.
