    Re: 1951 F-12 Versus F-5 Construction?

    Same materials used except in neck. The '51 F12 would be a mahgony neck. The F12 is lighter in weight, and generally sounds better than same year F5.

    The finish has been compressed in that area from the bridge foot due to string tension.
    If it was nitro, the area could be drop-filled, levelled, and polished by an expert. But that appears to be a...

    Not mine, but I did have the privilege of picking it up for Evan Elkin from Michael’s shop last year. One of the the most resonant and fun instruments I’ve ever played. 190117 190118190119190120
