2004 Ratliff R5
A great F5 mandolin from Audey Ratliff of Churchill, TN. In great shape except for a few chips and one split in the binding and a sporadic little peck or two in the finish.
This is a very open sounding mandolin with a bell like quality to the treble spectrum balanced with a strong and fundamental, woody midrange. It will cut a mix for sure! Setup with a low and comfortable action, it plays wonderfully all the way up and down the neck. Comes with a nice case from First Quality.
