Wonderful gaming and pure Gibson F sound
The new Gibson F-5G is my first Mandolin from the F-Series (otherwise a Gibson A from 1909). Already during the first playing with thomann, the sound of the mandolin "jumped" to the most positive. On the following day she had her first assignment with my band Front Porch Picking (Style: Americana). I am simply fascinated and enthusiastically, what wonderful pure straightforward sound develops the Gibson in the F-style? The whole body vibrates slightly, which is also felt in front of my stomach. The Gibson F-5G does not have the "narrower" tone of typical Bluegrass mandolins (as Bill Monroe once used), but reveals a soft acoustic timbre, which can be used to accompany songs / ballads very well, or fiddle tunes á la "Growlin 'Old Men". It is very solid, almost powerful in the hand, without the filigree being covered and it can be played comfortably up to the upper layers! The "investment" (I make in this form only once in my life) has proved itself just as much as my marriage has survived. I am convinced that the mandolin will keep me musically and wish that I can still bring the wonderful sound with my band. Göttingen in July 2016
