DESCRIPTION
This is a special instrument , here we have a 1947 Gibson F-12 mandolin that has had the Randy Wood F-5 upgrade . Randy Wood has built mandolins for Bill Monroe , he has also repaired instruments for Elvis and Johnny Cash , he's the man ! The F-12 / F-5 upgrade involves removing , graduating and tuning the top, scalloping the bracing as well as reseting the neck. All the work was done in 1995 . The instrument has a beautiful open tone with great projection . This F-12/F-5 is in fantastic shape , its very comfortable to play and is free of cracks , an original Gibson F-5 from this era can fetch anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000 . This is a great Mandolin at a very reasonable price. W/HSC
