    Re: What to expect, F5S?

    Just to add my 2Ę

    I bought a 2012 Big Mon in December, and to me it is the best sounding, and easiest playing mandolin I've owned. In fact, I liked it so much, I stumbled upon an amber F5S, and...

    I stumbled upon an April 1, 2002 F9 "unicorn" a couple years ago, and scooped it up. I had no idea about the specifics, I just knew I wanted a real Gibson! When it arrived I was surprised to see it...
