Vendor: Sumi
Type: Mandolins
Price: 3550.00

Sumi F-5 Deluxe with Fern inlay now available!# Japan's most renowned mandolin maker, Eiichi Sumi is most well known for the elevated, Kentucky-branded mandolins of the 1980s, and for the rare-bird copies of David Grisman's Monteleone F. This, Sumi's take on a classic Fern, is a loud, cutting bluegrass mandolin, capable of being driven hard! Outfitted with a K&K mandolin pickup, this mandolin is equally at home in acoustic jams or on the festival stage. Some pick wear on the top, and finish stress on the back; otherwise in very good overall condition.

Priced with hard case.
