For sale is a 1987/2017 Gilchrist Model 5.
My wife and I have a little baby on the way, and he will be here in 5 weeks, so it's really time to part with my Gil. I've really come to love this mandolin, both aesthetically and tonally. Also, the feel is pure vintage. The tone is about as woody as it gets. It is a very solid sounding mandolin and is extremely precise. This was re-topped in Feb 2017 from an Englemann Spruce top to what it has now - a very responsive Red Spruce top, as Steve put it when he was picking out the right top for this. Reason for re-top? I felt this mandolin had more to give and Steve agreed so I went for it and it absolutely worked. Comes with the big old original rectangular heavy duty case. Old Engelman top included, as well as the custom pickguard and cam clamp made by Steven Gilchrist.
Photos upon request...
$17,500. Two day shipping and insurance included with 48-hour approval period. Buyer pays two day shipping and insurance both ways, if mandolin is returned.
