2013 Skip Kelley F-5
Special / Sale Price - 2013 Skip Kelley F-5
Incredible Sound!

This monster mandolin, Skips 41st, was sold new bu MandoMutt back in early 2013. Original owner just purchased a brand new Redwood topped Skip Kelley, so this fine example is available again. We're getting $6500 for new Kelley F-5's, so this one is a bargain, considering it's in nearly new condition.

Specs; aged Adirondack Spruce (from the late Ted Davis' stash) top, heavily flamed Maple back/sides/neck in an antique sunburst, oil varnish finish with french polish top coat. Triple bound (w/b/i) throughout, radiused Honduran Rosewood fretboard, engraved James tailpiece, Schaller tuning gears and Claro Walnut headstock overlay with Mother-of-Pearl flowerpot inlay.

Beyond Beast sound. The Red Spruce has opened up nicely and features an evenly balanced, classic bluegrass tone. Very responsive and a banjo crushing chop. Comparable to a pair of Daley Vintage mandolins we've had, "like a Gibson on steroids."

Near mint condition. Has minor fretwear, otherwise mint.

Includes rectangular case with vintage green interior.

Trades gladly considered on this fine made in America instrument.
