The "F5-Tradition" (F5-T) was totally redesigned in 2014.

Scroll through (9) photos by using the "triangles" at the top & bottom of the vertical row of images.

Photos show 2013 version (until I can update). See "specs" below for revisons.

The "F5-Tradition" is built just like it's sister, the "F5-Special", except with less fancy trim and less flame in the maple.
Subtracting these features make the "F5-Tradition" more affordable ... but certainly does not affect tone, volume, or playability!!

The "F5-Tradition"s price includes an Arched Top Hardshell Case with "Tweed" exterior & Red Plush interior.

Photos of available "F5-Tradition" models (here in the shop) can be emailed to you for cosmetic decision making...
But I will always recommend the one that best fits your tonal needs, even if it is not the one you preferred cosmetically.

Voicing, fit, finish, & detail work on JBovier "F5-Tradition" models equal or surpass more famous mandolin brands in much higher price-ranges.

Each is custom labeled and personally set up when ordered, so they will not have a "generic" or "factory" set-up.
