Gibson F-5L Mandolin


This great instrument is still for sale, but unavailable through our website during our move.
Feel free to contact Bruce, in the meantime, to talk about it!

Montana built Gibson F5L signed by Steve Carlson #7025108.  This is one of the first Gibson mandolins built in the Flatiron shop after Gibson acquired the company in 1987.

It’s a real cannon!  Plays great and body shows very little wear, however peghead has significant string scratches.
