    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.

        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.
