Exquisite tone and consummate simplicity.

No-frills design has been given a minor face lift, which includes rosewood binding on the top of the body and pearl dot fingerboard inlays while maintaining the same stunning satin Vintage Brown finish. The F-9 has all the design features that give the F-5 its legendary tone, including a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint, solid maple neck, sides and back, solid spruce top, and a hand-tuned tone chamber.

Includes hardshell case.

All I can say is wow!

Comments about Gibson F-9 Mandolin:

I traded up to to a Gibson F-9 from a really nice Michael Kelly. When you're ready to move up to the next level, this is the mandolin for you. Without all the frills, the F-9 has the tone and feel of a F-5. If you want to get serious about your mandolin playing, buy a F-9

Great Mandolin

By Matt-MeNhQ

from Harrisburg, PA

Comments about Gibson F-9 Mandolin:

I've been playing mandolin for about 20 years, and have never been in the position to afford one of the high end Gibsons. This instrument is such a great addition to their line of mandolins. Tone is great, especially at low end; E string notes 12th fret and above are a bit thin, but not too bad--no doubt an effect of the satin finish. Overall great sound, no frills, and a great value. I put 4.0 for the features because of the absence of pick guard, but that is worth living with.

Oh, that Gibson Chop!

By mmukav

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Gibson F-9 Mandolin:

The gibson F9 is the real deal! All solid wood, maple top and sides, ebony fretboard, tuned parallel tone bars, Grover tuners, and: that unmistakable Gibson tone! This mando really has that bluegrass chop. Ringing highs, deep tone, plays like a dream. Comes with a hardshelled case. The finish is satin, and thin. That's what helps give it such nice tone. But you do have to be careful with it. But to have a real Gibson mandolin for this price, well it's a deal.
