1921 Gibson F-2$3,450.00
Scroll mandolin, VG++, original sunburst finish. After nearly a century this has a beautiful tone, with that woody “chop” yet a bit more sustain than the later f-hole instruments. All hand-carved, of course. Some quality repairs have been done – a new fingerboard and dots, but the original binding was reinstalled. The back has been off but done by a pro, and the very common break in the headstock curl reglued back on and filled (see photos). Comes in new rectangular hard case, freshly strung and set up, and ready to go.
