 Handmade K.E. Gibbs
Model 166s 'modified F style'
Mandolin

This mandolin was handmade by K. E. Gibbs. It is a model 166s. SN 1003. made in 2001. The makers name is engraved in the headstock name plate.

      It was ALL handmade, even the fretboard, the adjustable bridge w/ a bone saddle and the bone nut. It looks like it is made of solid Walnut and Spruce. The neck is pretty straight (it has a slight forward bow). The mandolin is very solidly built, with solid wood, handcarved arched top, front and back! It is in very good condition and appears to have been handled very little.
      It is playable, has a deep rich tone and very good volume and projection.
 *note
          Although the workmanship is a bit primitive, it is one of the most unique, ingenious, homemade instruments from real bluegrass mountain culture we've ever seen. Absolutely a collectors piece.





*note-we think the bridge placement, fretwork and string action ect. could stand a little 'fine tuning'. It would take a little work, but it IS doable.





It measures 30" x 10 1/2" and weighs right at 4 lbs
