2001 Lawrence F-5

Photo for Ad 214075

Interesting instrument handcrafted by Bert Lawrence out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Mr. Lawrence built guitars, violins and a few mandolins. This example was his 3rd mandolin. It appears to be fairly well built, with solid structural condition, fair fit and finish and a very good voice. Sounds much richer than it's modest price point.

Solid Sitka Spruce top, Birdseye Maple back/sides/neck in an blonde gloss lacquer finish with 3-ply bindings throughout, Radius Ebony fretboard, 1-3/16" nut width, parallel tone bars, Gotoh tuning gears, Allen style engraved tailpiece and a fern headstock inlay. Also has a Birdseye Maple pickguard, which has been removed, but is included in the sale.

Excellent to excellent minus condition.  Has some playwear below the fretboard and some superficial scratches on top. Back has some light scratching, probably from a button. Not much though. A former owner attempted to scoop the fretboard and did and amateur job. Light fretwear.

Please visit our website ( for photos and additional information. Includes a hard shell case. $1350
