Gibson F-5L The Fern Mandolin Fern Burst

The F-5L, introduced in 1978, marked the beginning of a return to the specifications of Lloyd Loar's original F-5 Master Model mandolins of 1922-24. Today's F-5 sets the standard by which all other mandolins are judged.

A note-perfect rendition of a legendary mandolin, it is meticulously handcrafted by Gibson luthiers to replicate the 1925 original notable for its abalone fern headstock inlay,the F-5 'The Fern' Mandolin has a tuned parallel tone bar with a carved spruce top and maple back and sides to generate that world-famous tone. A sumptuous finish, hand-engraved gold-plated hardware, and triple binding all speak to its vintage pedigree. Includes Gibson hardshell case.
