2002 Gibson F-5G **SOLD**More Details
.
Derrington era F-5G that is one of the good ones. The F-5G can be a hit or miss model. Some are good, others are so-so and every now and then there's a stand out. This one rates at the top of the heap.

Specs; solid Sitka Spruce top in a tobacco sunburst gloss lacquer finish, figured Maple back/sides/neck in an antique brown gloss lacquer finish. Top is ivoroid bound. Flat Ebony fretboard with mother-of-pearl position dots, and nickel hardware including Grover tuning gears and traditional tailpiece engraved with "The Gibson". Mother-of-pearl flowerpot headstock inlay.

Excellent-minus overall condition. Top has light scratching, an area of microphone rash below treble `f' hole and finish worn away in a tiny area at treble f-hole from pick wear. Back is fairly clean but has a funky area in finish near the tailpiece which is around 1/4" in diameter. May be a touch up spot.

Headstock shows some finish checking and significant string scratching. Frets have moderate wear, but fretwork is not needed at this time.

This is a stellar sounding F-5G featuring signature Gibson tone; woody, dry and warm. Features excellent balance across the strings. Plenty loud and a strong chop. Outstanding bluegrass mandolin and a MandoMutt Hoss. Nice set up too with low action.

If you're a serious picker and more concerned with a great sounding mandolin the offers excellent playability take a good hard look at this Gibson. If you're looking for a clean trophy, it's probably not the one for you.

Includes original TKL shaped case. Trades gladly considered on this fine American made mandolin.

Haven't seen many Arches mandolins of late, but Chris Baird of Moab, Utah has built some mighty fine instruments since he began some 12 years ago. To be perfectly frank, it would be most difficult to find a mandolin at this price point that is built as well and, more importantly, sounds as good.

Specs; solid Spruce top, highly flamed Maple back/sides/neck in a tobacco `burst hybrid varnish finish, 3-ply bound body and headstock, single ply bound fretboard. Radiused Ebony fretboard with Abalone dot inlays, adjustable Ebony bridge, cast Allen tailpiece and Grover tuning gears. 1-3/16" nut width.

Exceptional sound featuring a dry, woody tone with significant "pop" and power. Responsive and balanced. Wicked bluegrass chop. Nice set-up, really plays easy. Has a speed neck, but finish was not removed, but rather top coat was not applied. Stain only. Very good fit and finish on this Arches, s/n 6.

Excellent-plus to near mint condition, showing only a few tiny pings. Frets are like new. Doesn't appear to have been played much. Does have one area on back of neck, where neck joins the body where the first owner installed a a strap pin (why here???). This area has been filled and touched up, but still somewhat visible.

Includes TKL case. Trades gladly considered on this fine American made instrument.

Handcrafted by Sim Daley, a former Gibson builder who was one of the primary reasons that Derrington era Gibsons are consistently sensational. His solo stuff is even better and it's rare to see a pre-owned Daley mandolin available for purchase. This instrument was formerly owned by five time Grammy award winner, Adam Steffey. You can see and hear Adam play this instrument at; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti132tg3mvE

Specs; Engelmann Spruce top, Curly Maple back/sides/neck in a dark sunburst matte (looks semi-gloss) finish, 3-ply bindings throughout, radiused Ebony fretboard and Abalone Fern headstock inlay.

Original tuning gears have been replaced with Elites and original tailpiece replaced with James tailpiece. Finish has been professionally removed from back of neck, "speed neck".

"Beyond Beast" sound. Dry, woody and dynamic, this mandolin has it all. Stellar mid-range "pop". Power to spare, killer chop. Sensational bluegrass mandolin. A local friend once called one of our previous Daley's a "Gibson on steroids". Very appropriate and certainly applies with this hoss.

Excellent condition overall. Does show some pings, dings and light finish scratches in the thin finish. Some fret wear, but no need for work for some time yet. Definitely pleasing to the eye and ear with a vintage sound and look.

Trades gladly considered on this fine American instrument.
