Gibson F5 C. 1970 mandolin in exceptional condition in its original case.
A new pickguard was made by a luthier identical to the original one. The original is supplied with the mandolin.

Immerse yourself in rich musical history with the Gibson F5 mandolin. This instrument is not only a testament to Gibson's legendary craftsmanship, but a beacon of musical innovation that has lit up stages and studios, in the hands of the world's most revered artists.

Introduced in the early 1920s by master luthier Lloyd Loar, the Gibson F5 mandolin revolutionized the instrument with its unparalleled sound quality and exquisite design. By 1970, the F5 had cemented its place as the quintessential bluegrass mandolin, admired for its powerful projection and clear, precise tone. The F5 models of this era are particularly celebrated for their adherence to Loar's original vision, combining traditional craftsmanship with the musical demands of the time.

The F5 has been the instrument of choice for musical icons, from Bill Monroe, the father of Bluegrass, to contemporary virtuosos like Chris Thile, weaving its sound into the fabric of American musical history. Her distinctive voice and versatility have made her a mainstay in genres ranging from classical to folk, and, of course, bluegrass, where she continues to define the sound of the genre.

The Gibson F5: What Sets It Apart:

Superior Craftsmanship: The F5 demonstrates Gibson's commitment to excellence, with its hand-carved solid spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, ensuring a rich, resonant sound that matures beautifully over time.

Distinctive Aesthetics: Featuring the iconic scroll body design and sumptuous finishes, including the classic Gibson headstock inlay, this mandolin is as visually striking as it is sonically.

Versatile Sound: Known for its bright, penetrating tone and quick response, the F5 excels in both solo and rhythm roles, delivering a dynamic range that complements any musical style.

A Collectible Heirloom: Beyond its playability, the 1970 Gibson F5 is a collector's dream, representing a pivotal moment in the history of stringed instruments.
