2006 Stonebridge F5 (model MF5 22-CM, dated Oct. 27, 2006) made in the Czech Republic by noted luthier Frantisek Furch. This mandoin is in amazing condition! Save for the few faint and almost undetectable pick marks it looks brand new. No fret wear, or wear of any kind at all. The tone is loud with a clear, projecting voice and excellent note separation. A strong and biting midrange, perfect for bluegrass. The mandolin plays great all the way up the neck with a low action and room to move the adjustable bridge up or down to your liking. This would make a wonderful and unique alternative to the China made F style mandolins in the price range.
Spruce top, Mahogany back/sides/neck, sunburst finish, flat ebony fingerboard and adjustable bridge, 1-5/32" bone nut (in between standard and wide), triple w/b/w top binding, scooped fretboard extension, adjustable truss rod, chrome hardware, shaped F style hardshell case.
