Capek F5 Basic Mandolin

Capek F5 Basic Mandolin

Recently we were visited by Rost’a Capek and his wife, who live and work in Prauge, Czech Republic. Capek has been building instruments – primarily banjos and mandolin family members – for bluegrass and jazz players for over 26 years. We’ve just taken delivery of a Capek F5 Basic Mandolin model, and it is impressive. The build quality is very high and the instrument sounds great.
