It features the most select figured maple back, sides, and neck. The top is select spruce, and it has an accurate '20s dovetail neck joint.

Finished in hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer and sandblasted gold-plated hardware. The tailpiece sports Sam's signature.

      Comments about Gibson Sam Bush Signature Model Mandolin:

      Through the last 20 years of playing music I have bought and sold a lot of instruments, never really attach myself to one. In my music room you will find Martin Taylor Gibson ovation Yamaha and numerous handbuilt musical instruments, one instrument that I prize overall is my Gibson mandolin. The tone clarity I have found no equal. I'm not saying that every Gibson mandolin Will give you that, I found that the quality of the materials selected and design this Is unmatched. Again I can only talk for myself and my Sam Bush Gibson.

        Comments about Gibson Sam Bush Signature Model Mandolin:

        This is a very good mandolin. I didn't like the wide string spacing. I changed it to normal spacing.
        It made a good mandolin a better mandolin. I do like the wide nut and larger frets. It's a great mandolin.
