Taggart F5 1998. Classic F5 Tone And Playability.A Beauty

Photo for Ad 139418

Hello Cafe friends,
The Mandolin Cafe is a fantastic place to be spoiled for choice among the many fine mandolins and other instruments that you and I are ready to pass on to appreciative hands. How to stand out among so many great choices?

Well, up for your pleasure is a beautiful Taggart F5, with an upgraded James mandolin tailpiece. I'll assume most of you know Bruce's fine craftsmanship, both with violins and mandolins. As you can read from the many reviews, Bruce Taggart, for over 25 years, has been building some of the best traditional bluegrass mandolins, and this one has all the hallmarks of his craftsmanship.

This F5 has the balance, easy play-ability, sustain, clarity and projection that we expect from a finely crafted mandolin. Apologies for the mediocre photo because it does not do justice to Bruce's fine craftsmanship and the beautiful woods he used for this instrument.

Steve Perry of Mandovoodoo recently did his magic to bring the mandolin up to perfection. In his words, it sounds and plays "awesome." Glad to send you more detailed photos, and a recording that highlights its tonal beauty both for lead and rhythm playing.

Price is $3750, which includes shipping in the lower 48, a sturdy Travelite-type case, and a donation to the Mandolin Cafe (thank you Scott for the many years of joy on your website).

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest.
