A very clean example of this highly-regarded mandolin builder's fern F-5 model, with nicely figured maple and a warm sunburst finish. Original throughout except for the scooped fretboard, there are some minor nicks and dings to the finish but nothing very noticeable. The frets have some wear but they have lots of miles left. Nice slim neck, not the deep V profile you often find on F-5 style mandolins. Rectangular TKL case.
