2011 gibson festival F

This is probably one of the last flatiron mandolins Gibson made.  Unlike the earlier Festival Fs, this one has an elevated fingerboard and is quite high grade, made in nashville, perhaps a special order, really a neat mandolin and great sounding, really has that punch.  Quite good shape, the odd ding, original hard case.  this one will not dissapoint.
