1915 Gibson F2 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 132813

This Gibson F2 is the epitome of Gibson’s Florentine mandolin style in the pre-Loar era. Painstakingly crafted with a carved spruce top finished in the classic Gibson black, he back and sides are carved out of birch with a red oak stain. The body scroll and matching pegged scroll are timeless classics of a bygone era.
This particular example shows the typical amount of pick marks, lightly checked varnish, and fret wear (first 5 frets only) of an often played, but well cared for instrument. The delicately inlaid Handel tuners are un-scarred and in great working order. The often disintegrated to dust pick guard is present, complete and un-damaged.
As one would expect from such an instrument, the sound is rich and robust, with the round, fat, lower notes of the oval hole Gibson design.
A truly wonderful, over 100 year old treasure for player or collector.
$2995 with newer foam core hard case.
