Gibson Master Doyle Lawson F5 Mandolin w/Hard Case (used)

Regular price $ 8,249.00

Note: we sold this mandolin in 2021. The buyer unfortunately passed away a few months ago, and the family is reselling it through us for the estate. It is in the same excellent condition as described previously, below.

This one-of-a-kind mandolin is in excellent cosmetic and functioning condition save for a small 1-inch long scuff on the top (pictured). It was thoroughly inspected by our senior luthier, an expert in Gibson mandolin restoration. No repair concerns were noted.

The Doyle Lawson model mandolin is a product of collaboration between another contemporary master musician and Gibson's elite luthiers. With an all solid body and a tuned parallel tone bar, this instrument generates a "heavenly clean and resonant tone."

This particular instrument was actually played by Doyle Lawson at the 25th anniversary concert of former and current members of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, recorded as Doyle Lawson: Through the Years (DVD), before it was sold to the customer who is now consigning it through HMT.
