  • Gibson F4 1921. £3995.

    This 1921 F4 is has been around to block a few times, but has a great tone. It has a pre 1922 neck with a truss-rod  installed and an adjustable bridge. The lower part of the pre 1922 flower pot inlay is covered by a nickel  truss-rod cover. It is all original except the bridge and it is structurally sound with no issues. Modern fiberglass case.

    It plays beautifully and has great volume and the deep and resonant tone so beloved of these old Gibsons.

  • Sorensen Pacifica USED.

    This is my second Pacifica from Steve. Its another beauty in sound and looks. Engelmann spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ebony fretboard and bridge, James tailpiece, bound maple pickguard, abalone logo and inlay and a fantastic Bobelock fibreglass case with hygrometer and case cover.

    The sound is truly awesome. It is one of the loudest mandolins I've ever heard with a very powerful chop. This great volume comes with richness, depth, warmth and subtlety and an equally good response to a light touch. From bluegrass to folk, and classical this beauty can do it all. If I didn't have too many at home I would be taking it to join my collection.

    In good shape with some pick marks on the top, nothing through the finish.

  • Laskin Three.

    -in the higher frets we see the title to the first LP Monroe recorded, in the actual font, and given the text we can feel how the genre was beginning to take its name. Behind the lettering will be the blue sky as it looks on the album jacket

    -in the background to this title we see the stylized portrait of Bill, which actually comes from the right hand side of the same Opry poster we saw earlier. What this accomplished for me however is making Monroe himself the bookends to the narrative.
