Gibson Original announced the introduction of the Limited Edition Gibson Victorian F-style Mandolin with only 15 available in the world.


The Gibson Victorian Mandolin has each of the time-proven features that most mandolin players demand while combining the best attributes of the F5 and the F4 mandolin. It is constructed of figured maple back, sides and neck, and a red spruce top with f-holes, all held together with a hot hide glue. As a special touch, the limited edition instruments are made with a one-piece figured maple back, accentuated in an early Victorian Era-like Red Sunburst finish.

The peghead face features a Gibson "double flower pot" inlay used for the first time since the pre-truss era ended. The beautifully figured F5-length neck is topped by an ebony fingerboard with a subtle radius that finishes over the body with an F4-style fingerboard end. Other features include a period correct black face top, F4-style pickguard and side clamp, and nickel-plated Waverly arrow point tuners with ivoroid buttons.

The fingerboard body, and f-holes are also gracefully adorned with ivoroid binding. In keeping with the patina of these original models, the Gibson Victorian F-Style Mandolin comes with an aged varnish finish.
