Gibson F-9 Mandolin

The Gibson F-style mandolin has been perhaps the most influential of American mandolins, since Orville Gibson re-invented the mandolin in the closing days of the 19th century.

This new Gibson F-9 Mandolin is one of the new and very welcome Gibson models; for quite some time following the 2010 floods in Nashville there was no Gibson mandolin production at all.

The Gibson F-9 mandolin is a ‘no frills’ model featuring a carved and tuned spruce top and flame maple back, flame maple sides and neck, and a rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Only the top is bound, and the instrument sports a satin finish in a vintage brownburst.

Otherwise, this is a Gibson F-style mandolin, with 13 29/32 inch scale length, 1 1/16 inch nut width, and a rounded V neck profile. The tuners are nickel plated Grovers with pearloid buttons, and the Gibson-engraved tailpiece is nickel plated.

The original hardshell Gibson case is included.
