1996 Flatiron Festival F5 in overall great condition besides having lots of dings and scratches. No cracks or separations of any kind. No prior repairs and none needed. This is a great deal on a nice American made F5 if you don't mind some character on the finish. Loud and punchy, this mandolin will slice through any bluegrass jam with ease. Plays great with a nice low action with plenty of room to move the adjustable bridge up or down to your liking. Comes with a shaped hardshell case in good condition with a few dings of it's own.
