Gibson F-5L Fern Mandolin


Instrument Categories:

Please note!  The instrument shown here is SOLD, and new models are presently unavailable from Gibson.   We’re maintaining this post for reference.  

We’ve just received another of the rare and wonderful Gibson F-5L Fern Mandolins!

These mandolins are a welcome sight, not just because they are great instruments but also because they mean that Gibson’s Nashville production lines are recovering from the devastating floods of 2010.

The Gibson F-5L Fern mandolin is a classic, with a carved spruce top, carved flame maple back, sides and neck, elegant fern-style inlays on the ebony headplate, and a beautiful gloss nitrocellulose lacquer sunburst finish.

This mandolin comes with a rectangular hardshell case.

You can read our older feature on the first Gibson F-5L Fern mandolin we received, here. (Yes, they are the same photos!)
