    Gibson Master Model F5 @ the Mandolin store

    Aside from the player obviously being good I think this mandolin sounds spectacular. I have no financial interest whatsoever, just wanted to share what seems to be a stellar mandolin. Dave Harvey and...

    Today is the anniversary of the smashing on Monroe's mandolin, certainly not a pretty day or cause for celebration. A reminder we have the only video interview with Charlie Derrington about the...

    If you haven't seen this site it's worthwhile to take a trip over to it. I was looking for some original pricing information this morning and this popped up. It's a nice resource.

    Re: Wood identity question

    Hendrik - that is great, clarifying info - thank you so much. So burl is a characteristic of wood, not an actual type of wood? Seems that the staining tradition has changed over the years - don't see...

    It should be noted that since the Gibson F5 was introduced in 1922 it has always been a "custom" ordered model. A dealer would have to order one based on someone putting a deposit down at the...

    Re: Fern Loar F5 Attic Find

    I noticed that myself before Henry "Henrik" mentioned it! But didn't want to ruffle feathers. That one is more than likely a late 1929-early 30's F-5, you can see the post through the fern leaves as...
