Used Gibson F-4 Used Gibson F-4 1918, carved spruce top, one piece maple back, double flower pot inlay, Handel tuners with inlaid buttons. A bit of age-expected top sink, but it sounds and plays great. All original, with the exception of the missing pickguard. Includes a recent Gator hardshell case.
Used Gibson F-5 Fern Used Gibson F-5 Fern 1936, maple, spruce, one piece maple neck, bound ebony fretboard with abalone block inlays, fern inlay on headstock, "The Gibson" in abalone on headstock, stamped MADE IN U.S.A. on back of headstock suggesting it was originally exported, original case with new handle. Not a lot of wear for an instrument of this vintage. Light surface marks on scroll and fewer marks on the back. Neck has nice wear from an instrument well-played and loved. Headstock scroll has a small repair on the back, but does not go all the way though to the front of the headstock. There are two small marks between the tuners - not sure of their origin. The pickguard has a small, repaired, stable crack at the tip. See photos. This is a beautiful and rare mandolin - pre-War, post-Lloyd Loar - that plays well, sounds great, and hard to find in this good of condition. It includes the original hard case and is being sold as-is.
Used Gibson F-12 Used Gibson F-12 1962, maple, spruce, red sunburst, rosewood bridge and fingerboard, gold plated hardware, "Gibson" modern script and crown inlays in peghead, has original pickguard with cutout for pickup, otherwise excellent condition, includes original hardshell case.

In very good condition with abundant finish checking, some chipped away finish areas and the finish is worn off back of the neck, along with normal player wear and a completely stabalized and glue/filled one-inch crack in the back next to the neck heel. Comes with a gig bag.
