A nice early Dave Dart F-5, and one Gryphon sold over 20 years ago. Despite it's age there are few signs of use aside from some fret wear and some light finish scuffs, so it's enjoyed careful handling. For those who don't necessarily love the typical "deep V" mandolin neck shape, this Dart F-5 is a treat because the neck is a D shape, giving your left hand a lot more position options. Also note that the fingerboard is just a bit wider at the nut, with a slight radius, giving your fingers a little extra room without that "wide neck" feel. Excellent tone and projection. Nice lightweight fiberglass case with keys in the accessory pocket.
