skaggs-gibson-f5-mandolinGibson releases the Ricky Skaggs Limited Edition Distressed Master.

The Gibson website reveals that this mandolin is the result of over 12 months close development with the Ricky Skaggs. This signature model mandolin is closely based on Ricky’s 1923 Lloyd Loar F-5 – an instrument revered for its tone and playability.

Each mandolin in this limited 30-instrument run comes with a certificate of authenticity, and is personally inspected by Ricky to ensure it meets his rigorous standards for tone, playability, and appearance. Price – just $US22,900.00.
