Gibson's Original Acoustic Instruments division joined forces with one of today's influential contemporary bluegrass mandolinists and created the Alan Bibey Signature model. The instrument is based on Gibson's F-5 scroll-body design, but with many unique features.

Bibey wanted the mandolin to have the classic looks and sound of a Loar, but with tortoiseshell binding and antique 'burst finish. Other special appointments include the old-style flowerpot headstock inlay, hand-engraved gold-plate hardware and a stained, unfinished neck, "so it feels wonderful in any kind of weather." Bibey specified a scalloped neck extension so the mandolin is player-friendly, even for those players who have a tendency to hit the extension with the pick. The ebony fingerboard has the classic dot inlay. The mandolin comes with a rectangular hardshell case.

MSRP: $8,430.
