    Default Picture request

    I am looking for a photograph of a Gibson f5 for Wikipedia. It is hard to believe, but of all the beautiful images of the F5 out there, none has been submitted, to use in the articles about the mandolin, the bluegrass mandolin, or the Gibson F5.

    If someone just happened to have access to an F5 (note to self...suppress jealousy), what I need is a simple shot showing the front or a 3/4 view of the instrument. I also need permission to put it on Wikipedia, preferably in the public domain so that it can be used in multiple articles.

    Another need is a similar picture and permissions for Bill Monroe's F5.

    Thank you,
    Jack

    You could use mine but, I don't have one, Ken is very generous with that sort of thing! And he takes some pretty good pictures as well, mine would show upside down!

    Wow! That is awesome, Ken. Thank you! I'll get it online ASAP. I may have to contact you if they need something specific with permissions.

    Thank you,
    Jack

    I've said it before, I'll say it again:
    The most generous folks are here at "Mandolin Cafe"!
    Now, if I could find a job, I might have to buy a new mandolin!
