1. Flinthills/Franzke F5 Special (used)

    Flinthills/Franzke F5 Special (used)

    Out of stock
    Used F5 special made by Mark Franzke before he changed the name to Franzke mandolins. Gorgeous Autumn brown gloss sunburst, single bound top and back, solid cast Allen tailpiece, tight tiger striped flamed maple back and sides and mother of pearl logo and headstok inlay. Its loud with powerful mids giving a great 'woof' of air from a chop chord, solid and woody bases and clear, well defined sharp trebles. Great for bluegrass, as mentioned, but it also has a richness in tone to make it a very versatile mandolin. With TKL case.

    It has some honest play wear but is structurally sound with no issues. Hence the amazing price, this is one heck of a lot of F5 for a tad under two grand.

    This beauty has a very even sound from the lowest G all the way up the fretboard, not biased towards the bass notes like so many oval holed mandolins. The tone is very full and sweet with great individual note definition, fantastic for folk/old time and many more styles.

    It has a very balanced sound with full basses, rich and complex mids and clear, ringing trebles. The chop is what I refer to as 'musical' plenty of power and cut but with warmth and richness. Great for bluegrass and almost any other style of playing.
