1922 Gibson F4 Mandolin #69909


1922 manufacture date (traditional estimates)
1922 shipment date, according to Spann's Guide to Gibson
Mandolin, Style F4
Serial 69909
Factory order number unknown


Truss-rod F4 owned & operated by Kevin Macleod

Tailpiece coverplate was missing, now has a good engraved "Gibson" replica.

Original bridge was in the original case, and Kevin had that reinstated as part of a setup job that Jimmy Moon did on it. Tuners, pickguard, fretboard all original.

Previously owned by Jimmy MacGregor, BBC radio and TV presenter and broadcaster, who was quite well known in the 1960's as part of the duo with Robin Hall.
