With the Epiphone F-5 Studio mandolin, you'll experience the legendary tone of Lloyd Loar's original F-5 design in an affordable, all-solid wood instrument. Since Epiphone's earliest days, mandolins have been an integral part of the company's heritage. Now, they're proud to offer musicians a high-quality F-style mandolin with the resonant voice of premium tonewoods.

Iconic F-Style Design

The Epiphone F-5 Studio's double-pointed body and scroll-shaped headstock embody the elegance of the original F-style mandolin. Its Sitka spruce top and maple back and sides are carefully crafted and joined, then finished with a thin satin finish that highlights the wood's beauty. The simplicity of its appointments focuses attention on the mandolin's graceful lines and let its tone shine through.

Balanced, Resonant Tone

An all-solid wood construction gives the F-5 Studio a full, balanced tone that projects clearly. The spruce top resonates freely, producing crisp highs, while the maple back and sides add warmth and depth. Its tone is highly responsive, blooming as you play to fill the room. The thin satin finish protects the wood while allowing it to vibrate openly for the best possible sound.

A Traditional Neck Profile Inspires Expressive Playing

The Epiphone F-5 Studio mandolin's maple neck has a traditional profile that feels instantly familiar in your hands. Its laurel fingerboard hosts 20 medium frets, allowing you to execute chord voicings and rapid single-note passages with ease. A vintage-style scroll headstock completes the classic look and provides ideal string tension. Overall, the neck design promotes an expressive, virtuosic playing experience that will fuel your creativity.

Traditional Appointments Honor the F-5's Legacy

With its arched top, f holes and asymmetrical body, the Epiphone F-5 Studio mandolin embodies the classic F-style shape pioneered by Lloyd Loar. It also features traditional appointments like an adjustable laurel bridge and vintage-style tuners with ivoroid buttons. These premium components not only look great but also directly contribute to the instrument's acoustic excellence and historically-inspired tone.
