This pre-owned Red Diamond July 9th F5 model is just into the shop for consignment! "Pre-owned" is definitely the right descriptor here: given a Red Diamond's ultra thin finish and vintage aesthetic, this could rightly be looked at as getting an "as-new" instrument at a bit of a savings. These expertly made replicas of the renowned July 9th, 1923, Lloyd Loar mandolins have the vibe, responsiveness and crushing sound to rival the real deal. The voice is deep and woody, with tremendous "pop" on the middle strings. Priced with Hiscox hard case.
