F-STYLE GOLD STANDARD MANDOLIN PROTOTYPE
This is an interpretation of the classic Gibson F-5 mandolin. Between 1982 and 1994 I built over 100 mandolins including dozens of F-5 copies. I chose to quit building the F-5 in 1994. Since then, I have often played with the idea of doing a re-design that would reflect my own design sense. This one-off mandolin is the result of my effort.
As of 2018 I am no longer building mandolins.
