Incredible Sound!

2013 Skip Kelley F-5 **SOLD***More Details
.
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.

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.

Hard to find fault with a Red Diamond. We've had a few, but this is our first Vintage model. Certainly has the vintage Loar kind of sound, feel and appearance. Extraordinary. This example, s/n 220 features a lovely one piece back, top shelf appointments and a Hoffee case.

A delicious sounding mandolin featuring woody, warm and super dry tone with outstanding clarity and note definition. Quite powerful and responsive. Perfect chop. Reminiscent of a couple of the better Gibson Master Models we've had and would likely stack up well with a 1923 Gibson F-5 I've played.

Excellent cosmetic condition. Does show some play wear on the top with some finish scratches and small dings. Light finish blemishes, two on top edges near each f-hole and one near center of back, perhaps from an instrument stand.

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.

Excellent to excellent-minus condition. Top has some light scratches and a few small dings. Apparently, the bridge has been moved at some point 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 and headstock has some string marks. Light fret wear, nearly none. Fretboard extension has been professionally scooped.
