❌SOLD❌ Flatiron F5 Custom Mandolin Blackburst, 1996

The Flatiron F5 was a take on one of the most influential mandolin designs, the Gibson F5, designed by Lloyd Loar and introduced in 1922. Loar built on Orville Gibson’s groundbreaking blending of violin, mandolin and guitar design concepts that produced the first archtop fretted instruments. Flatiron was started by Chuck Morrison, and in 1978 purchased by Steve Carson, who soon hired Ren Ferguson.

The Weber Big Sky F Style mandolin is no longer in production having been replaced by the Fern model – clear references to classic early American Mandolins made by Gibson and other companies. Intended as a working player’s mandolin, the Weber Big Sky features an X-braced, carved Spruce top paired with sides and a carved back of vividly Flamed Maple, a Maple neck and Ebony for the head plate and bound fingerboard.
