Overview

Gibson F-5s from 1922-24 were designed, built, hand-tuned and signed by acoustic engineer Lloyd Loar and are considered to be the finest mandolins ever made. The new Distressed F-5 Master Model has a hand applied and hand aged finish, complete with finish checks and playing wear, that makes it virtually indistinguishable from an original. The Distressed F-5 mandolin has a spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, and ebony fingerboard with mother-of-pearl dot inlays. Classic appointments include a flowerpot headstock inlay, silver-plated, hand-engraved hardware, and a vintage reproduction bridge. The hand-rubbed, ultra-thin Cremona Sunburst finish is carefully aged by the skilled luthiers at the Gibson OAI division in Nashville. The Distressed F-5 comes with a 1920s-style rectangular deluxe hardshell case.
