OVERVIEW

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.

The standard by which all other mandolins are judged.

FEATURES
  • Carved solid spruce top
  • Carved solid AAA flamed maple back and sides
  • Bound extended ebony fretboard
  • Tuned parallel tone bar
  • Lacquer finish
  • Abalone fern headstock inlay
  • Triple top binding

The top of the mountain, the apex of mandolin design and building. Look no further, your search has ended. If you think you're ready, we have your forever instrument.

      Truly Amazing

      Comments about Gibson F-5 The Fern Mandolin:

      Let me tell that there are two production mandolins that I have every experienced that top this mandolin. Those two are the gibson master models. I would say this mando is about 98% of those instruments. If you want to spend 2-3 times more for that last 2%, then go ahead. If not, this is the best looking, feeling, and playing mandolin in existence. period.

      This Mandolin is awesome. My friend owns one of these and I love it! If you have this much money, don't waste it on a cheap car that won't last long. Get The F5 The Fern!
