GIBSON LLOYD LOAR F-5 MANDOLIN PLANS - VERSION 3

..to our complete listing of Books - Mandolin Blueprints
GIBSON LLOYD LOAR F-5 MANDOLIN PLANS - VERSION 3 drawn by Adrian Minarovic
Updated and expanded, now with four sheets instead of three! Adrian has completely redrawn these plans: all lines are now smooth and clean, averaged measurements have been replaced with exact measurements, the original arching is shown in a graduation map that reveals typical imperfections, hidden aspects of construction were added (neck construction, truss rod position, dovetail size, etc.), many of which were previously undocumented or unknown. With the help of Bill Halsey, texts were re-written into technical English with clear wording. Based on a Gibson F-5 mandolin signed by Lloyd Loar in 1923, these full-size, impressively detailed computer generated plans show the instrument from nearly every conceivable angle including front, side, headstock, tailpiece, an inside view showing placement of tonebars, a dramatic view looking down the instrument from headstock to bottom, plus soundboard thicknesses, fret to nut distances, table of materials, and many more annotated drawings. These are accurate full scale, printed for Adrian by a company that used to prints maps (for military uses) using an offset technique on offset paper (100g/m2). Shipped rolled in a heavy tube. Suitable for framing! Each plan consists of 4 sheets measuring approximately 23" x 33".
