Amazingly well preserved 1914 Gibson F-4 mandoline. Build in 1914 and finished in Red this one had very carefull owners. Two-point body, oval bound soundhole with two wood rings, top body binding, top border with white and green rope style, ebony fingerboard with treble side extended and dot inlays, scroll-style peghead with the classic double flowerpot inlay. Very woody and lively sound!!

Some tiny dents but nothing serious. Structuraly and technical near mint. One tuner has had a slight knock on the head so the stem has a slight curve. Tuners have been cleaned, oiled and work excellent. This sweetheart is has a very wooden tone and would do perfect in folk or pop music. Click the soundcloud button below to hear the soundimpression of this beatiful old lady.
