Excellent condition with no issues. The F-4 was the top of the line mandolin for Gibson in 1915. It has a red slightly sunburst top finish, spectacular flamey woods on the back and sides, one piece back, Handel inlaid tuners, pearl double flowerpot logo, bound top and back, and a bound ebony fingerboard with treble extension. All hardware and finish is original. Nice big woody sound from this mandolin with good bass! Neck is straight, neck angle is good and the frets show very little wear. No repairs or refinish noted.
