The standard F-style Gibson Jam Master Mandolin descends straight out of Gibson tradition, delivering a fresh new take on one of Gibson's most popular mandolins.
Each Gibson F-style is crafted with all the artistry of a world-class mandolin maker. The result is the no-nonsense, hard-traveled, but much-loved look of a superb mandolin that fits in at any musical occasion.
The F-style mandolin's stripped-down appointments offer a simple yet elegant look. The mandolin is graced with performance-enhancing elements that players of the Jam Masters Series will certainly appreciate. F-holes remain unbound, there's no neck or headstock binding, no position markers on the fretboard (side dots only), and no inlay on the peghead, just the timeless Gibson logo decal. All of the notable luthiery features you do find, however, are in the tone and playability departments.
Bigger frets, plus the satin finish equals improved performance
This F-style Jam Master Standard Mandolin features a top carved from solid spruce, trimmed with simple single-ply binding to contrast its classic Gibson Sheraton Brown color with satin lacquer finish. The back and sides are constructed from figured maple, and the figured maple necks are hand-shaped to Gibson's popular "rounded V" profile, with a 1-3/16" width at the nut providing enhanced comfort and finger room across the radiused ebony fingerboard. Thirteen of the mandolin's 20 frets clear the body, and are a little bigger than the traditional frets typically fitted on vintage mandolins”a modification that improves fingering for many players and playing styles, and one that many contemporary players are sure to appreciate. Advanced constructional features include Gibson's time-tested tone bar bracing, a radiused dovetail neck joint, and a genuine bone nut, all of which help to enhance the instrument's resonance and projection. An adjustable ebony bridge and nickel Grover tuners round out the package.
This instrument comes in a snug pouch-plentiful padded travel bag, making it ready for the road and easy to haul from site to site.
