The Gibson F-5 Master Model is a beautiful instrument with full, resonant, well-balanced tone and great carrying power. Finished with an ultra-thin, hand-brushed varnish and hand-applied French polish, it's the ultimate in sound and beauty. Hand-carved red spruce top on maple rims and back with tuned parallel tone bar produce tone beyond anything you've heard before. Triple body and head binding; bound ebony fingerboard; flowerpot headstock inlay; hand-engraved silver-plated hardware; reproduction ebony bridge; and pearloid tuner buttons are all the luxury Mr. Loar built into the original. It comes in Gibson's finest '20s-style rectangular hardshell case.
