Gilchrist 5 1980

Photo for Ad 120960

A beautiful example of an early Gilchrist. This '80 model 5 is a copy of a 1923 Loar and was originally made with no logo. The owner had Gibson inlaid and then recently had Gilchrist replace it. The mandolin was owned for a time by David Grisman.

With only minor playwear, this Gilchrist 5 is in excellent condition for its age. Comes with a hard case.


Nut Width - 1 1/16"
Radiused Fingerboard
Case - Hard Case
