The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Capek F5 Basic Mandolin

Instrument Categories: ,

This instrument came from a visit by Rost’a Capek and his wife, who live and work in Prague, Czech Republic. Capek has been building instruments – primarily banjos and mandolin family members – for bluegrass and jazz players for over 26 years. Given the long history of European craftsmanship, it’s great to see these new instruments making it to North America.

This Capek F5 Basic Mandolin model, and it is impressive. The build quality is very high and the instrument sounds great and plays extremely well. Built at Rosta Capek’s shop in Prague, Czech Republic.

Includes molded hardshell case.
