.
This mandolin, I'm told, was the 7th built after Gibson purchased the Flatiron company, s/n 7007088 and label signed by Steve Carlson on August 18, 1987.

Sitka Spruce top, curly maple back/sides/neck in a light, ice tea sunburst gloss lacquer finish with 3-ply bindings throughout. Flat Ebony fretboard w/ scooped extension with faux frets and Mother-of-Pearl position dots. Gold hardware includes Schaller tuners w/ pearl knobs and engraved traditional tailpiece. Parallel tone bars and Abalone "Fern" headstock inlay round out the appointments.

Excellent tone; warm, woody and dry. Very good volume and big, beasty bluegrass chop. A well played, traditional sounding mandolin.

Excellent-plus condition overall. Does have maybe eight to ten small lacquer dings in the top, and perhaps a light scratch or three. Has a strap pin hole (yes, someone actually installed a strap pin on a scroll mandolin!) that has been filled. Currently has all original equipment with lone exception being frets which have been replaced with larger frets.

Includes original oblong case in decent, fully functional condition. Trades gladly considered on this fine American made Instrument.

Price: $4,999.95

Delightful dreadnought built by John Osthoff of Beckett, Ma. that features top shelf woods, superb fit and finish, first class appointments and a lovely voice. Just returned from the shop for a pro set up.

Specs: Wide grained Adirondack Spruce top, Mahogany back/sides/neck, Herringbone purfling and soundhole rosette, Toroise bindings, Ebony fingerboard with Mother-of-Pearl diamond inlays, Ebony bridge, and Schaller vintage style tuning gears with butterbean knobs.

Excellent-plus to near mint condition showing only light playwear. Top has some superficial finish scratches, treble side has a few indention type scratches and an area of very light finish checking. That's about it. Very clean guitar.

Has all the tonal attributes I'm so fond of in a Hog; dry, dynamic and articulate with big volume. Clean and sweet, but nicely balanced and warm. Really tempted to keep this one.

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

Price: $2,499.95

This Derrington Era Gibson has some natural distressing, but my goodness does she have the tone. Easily the best sounding Danny Roberts signed F-5L that we've had. Not a trophy, but certainly a fine bluegrass mandolin.

Specs: Sitka Spruce top, highly flamed Maple back/sides/neck in a cremona burst, gloss lacquer finish, 3-ply bound body, headstock and pick guard, single Ivoroid bound fretboard. Flat Ebony fretboard, Adjustable Ebony bridge, tone bar bracing and Abalone Fern headstock inlay. Gold hardware includes; engraved traditional tailpiece and (replacement) Schaller tuning gears.

Exceptional sound. Warm, dry and woody with excellent note separation. Killer mid range pop and clear, ringing highs. Big, percussive chop and very good volume. The Roberts Gibson's can be hit and miss. This one's a home run.

Excellent to excellent-minus condition. Top has some light scratches and a few small dings. Apparently, the bridge has been moved at some pint and the finish had been scarred down to the wood from the bridge feet, however, our luthier drop filled with some lacquer and nursed it back to health. Did a fine job. Still visible, but looks so much better. Back and sides show some blemishes from a Tone Gard (I really don't understand why people use those things!!!) and headstock has some string marks. Light fret wear, nearly none. Fretboard extension has been professionally scooped.

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