Gilchrist Model 5 (2004)



What can we say, really, that you haven't already thought? This outstanding 2004 Gilchrist Model 5 mandolin (SN 04-567) is simply as good as it gets -- the kind of tone, resonance and power you're only going to find elsewhere if it's signed by Lloyd Loar. This is a tone-bar braced, Red Spruce topped Model 5, in excellent condition and setup flawlessly. A screaming good bluegrass mandolin, but it's plenty sweet when you want it to be, with the dry, woody sound you'd expect to hear in a world-class mandolin. A rare and exceptionally great sounding instrument from one of the world's most esteemed craftsmen. With Calton Case.
