Exquisite tone and consummate simplicity.
A custom replica of Sam Bush's '38 F5.
It may be an instrument that dates back to the 17th century, but in recent times the mandolin has made a huge resurgence in popular music, and Gibson mandolins are amongst the most exquisitely crafted on the market today. A long time staple of American bluegrass and folk music, the Gibson mandolin's distinctive sound now spans a wide variety of musical genres, from indie-rock to even Celtic punk.
Like all instruments manufactured by Gibson, their mandolin's are constructed with only the highest quality materials and woods. And throughout their extensive selection, you'll have no problem finding the perfect mandolin to suit your own musical tastes and playing style.
For a truly gorgeous work of art, the Gibson F-5G Mandolin features the same remarkable construction as the F-5L with fewer frills so it's more affordably priced. The bound scroll work of this mandolin meets Gibson's toughest standards, and the extended fretboard and tuned parallel tone bar produces a tone that is unmatched.
Of course, we couldn't mention Gibson mandolins without touching on the Gibson Sam Bush Signature Model. Crafted of the most select figured maple back, sides and neck, the top of this mandolin is select spruce, and it's finished in hand-rubbed nitrocellulose lacquer with sandblasted gold-plated hardware. To top it all off, this mandolin sports Sam Bush's signature on the tailpiece. Like every Gibson mandolin, this instrument has been designed specifically for the most discerning mandolinist.
When Orville Gibson took it upon himself to design an entirely new style of mandolin in 1894, there was no telling how legendary his name would become over the next hundred years. Since then, Gibson Mandolins have remained the number one choice of expert mandolinists in the USA. Whether you're a touring performer or a dedicated connoisseur of impeccably crafted traditional instruments, a Gibson Mandolin would make an exceptional addition to any serious musician's collection.
