That is fantasic detail...however, that's one of Gibson's stock photos or a full sized F-5 they are using.

I contacted the seller. The photo is of the seller's dad's F-5. He does not have thhe models in hand yet. They will be 8 inches tall.
I would say he was a bit quick to market them, not even having them yet. :(

I'm tempted, but finding a HSC for one of these might be a bit problematic.

"it is been custom made for me"

I'm going to handcraft a "custom miniature mandolin guitar" in "fantastic detail" just for you I hope you will display and treasure it forever in you music room.

No wait, I'm going to handcraft 9 "custom miniature mandolin guitars" in "fantastic detail" just for you and I hope you treasure them just long enough to post them on ebay for a song and make a profit off all my hard work.

No wait, I'm going to buy 10 "run of the mill Christmas ornaments" from China keep 1 as a christmas ornament and overstate the quality of the rest and make a handsome profit.

Same picture, no dimensions... I don't get it. It seems decietful to say the least.

Perhaps that's why I'll never get rich.

The new listing has a picture of the model - not a full sized instrument, at least I hope that is the model. It sure isn't much to look at if it is real.

I wonder if those are "Hand Curved" ? HaHaHa :))

A bit off the topic but what do you suppose will become of all those c****y mandolins from over there? Are people really buying that junk? :))

BTW, I'm not referring to the good quality Eastmans, Kentuck's and the other few good brands so don't take me wrong. :mad:
