Capek F5 Basic Mandolin

Comments Recently we were visited 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.

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.
