Gibson Original Proudly Presents the Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model Mandolin
(Gibson | Posted 2006-12-11)
Gibson Original is proud and excited to announce the launch of the Ricky Skaggs Limited Edition Distressed Master Model mandolin. The result of over a year of close cooperation between Ricky and Gibson, Ricky’s signature mandolin is closely based on his 1923 Lloyd Loar F-5. The Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model features a beautiful Cremona Sunburst finish which gracefully accents the premium, red spruce top and maple back and sides. With a tap-tuned top for crisp chops and articulate lines, exquisite binding and headstock inlay, and a comfortable “speed neck” profile—an exact replica of Ricky’s F-5—the Ricky Skaggs mandolin is another example of the exquisite work and painstaking attention to detail that Gibson Original puts into every instrument.
