Gibson F-4 Mandolin 1924


Sold Make an enquiry


While 1924 may be best known for the Lloyd Loar-signed F-5 Master Models, the charming sounding F-4 that captures the hearts of those seeking a more delicate voice. Perfect for Celtic, old time, and classical music, the F4 offers a different type of versatility when compared to its F-hole counterparts. Standing the test of time, this example is a testament to what a properly constructed instrument can endure and has held up remarkably well with the appropriate signs of wear. Whether you are looking for the dry tone only accessible through years of aging, or the most desirable vintage oval hole mandolin on the market to complete your collection, this one will most certainly deliver.
