If you're looking for a modern builder's interpretation of Mr. Loar's timeless F-5 design, Olin Davis' finely crafted Rattlesnake Mandolins may fit the bill. Built here in North Carolina, the Rattlesnake F-5 imparts the timeless mandolin tone found in the best F-style Gibsons, and the build quality is top notch! This Rattlesnake features a hand-graduated and tap-tuned red spruce top, maple back, sides & neck, and the "fern" inlay with script logo. 1 1/16" nut width. This is an impressive mandolin with seemingly endless bluegrass chop...check out the demo video below!
