Exquisite tone and consummate simplicity.

No-frills design gives it a sleek look that is unique among traditional mandolins. Black binding on the top, no fingerboard inlay, and a hand-stained finish with an extremely thin satin lacquer outer coat impart elegant beauty. Boasts all the same 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 shaped hardshell case.

Features

  • Spruce top
  • Maple neck, back, and sides
  • Tuned parallel tone bar
  • Ebony extended fretboard
  • Gibson script headstock inlay
  • Black bound top
  • Nickel plated hardware

All I can say is wow!

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

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

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.
