1922 Gibson F4 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 144190

(Serial No. 70515) Excellent condition. True red sunburst finish. This is a nice Loar era instrument. It is a transition model; it has the truss rod and original adjustable bridge, but retains the clamp style pickguard mount. Note that the truss rod access was cut right through the peghead inlay. Gibson did not waste anything - they had peghead overlays already prepared and just used up the existing stock. The nice thing is you get the best of both eras - the slightly wider neck of the non-truss rodded instrument, but with all of the Loar era improvments. Has a wonderful flamed birch 2 piece back and Adirondack spruce top. This is a exceptionally good sounding F4 with that wonderful woody round hole Gibson tone, and it plays beautifully. No repairs or refinish evident. It does show a little playing wear as seen in the pictures, but that is because it sounds so good, pickers played it! This was not a case queen. Excellent for Celtic, jazz, classical, or old-time music. Comes with an original early 20s Gibson green lined hard shell case. ...USD $6500
