    The listing has expired. Looks like an F5G in the thumbnail. The “master model” designation can be confusing. Not a bad price, if you’re looking for a G.

    It looks like a nice example at a fair price. My first Gibson F was an F5-G, it stood above all the previous mandolins I had owned prior. It had that sound that I've had to revisit with my current brood.

    The description says ' rosewood fretboard ' it sure looks like ebony to me.

    This is a different listing. Original was in Brunswick, Ohio. The second one is in Port Jefferson Station, NY.

    Carter just listed here a super interesting F5G commemorating the Nashville Library, for $3,250. If I were looking for a Gibson F, or any F, I'd jump at this. It's a bit of an oddity but at the same time that makes it unique. Don't let the flat fingerboard scare you.

    Good eyes Steve Roberts (my bad).
    Thank you Mike Romkey for the heads up on this (below).
