Gibson F-4 mandolin (1914) SN. 19577
Here for sale we have a Gibson F-4 built in 1914. These Gems of instruments from this golden era have become extremely sought after by players and collectors alike. We feel that this particular F-4 would be a great players instrument. There are plenty of nicks, dings, scratches and wear marks to the finish as can be seen in the detailed photos.There is also a repair to the back of the neck near the headlock where someone must had bumped it. There is a very small hairline crack near this repair but we know it is either glued or otherwise stable because it has not moved in the almost 30+ years since it was done There are also small cracks to the white binding but no missing pieces. However this mandolin has no cracks in the body and has nice action and amazing tone. It appears to be all original including its engraved tuning machines and flower pot mother of pearl headstock inlay and it comes in its original hard shell brown fitted case in serviceable condition.
