Based in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, Crooks Mandolins creates hand crafted, F-style mandolins based on Gibson's F-5 design. Traditional design is complemented with contemporary features which enhance the timeless beauty of this Florentine-inspired instrument.
I have recently begun making A5 models based on the 1923 Gibson Loar A5. Check the "On the Workbench" page for construction photos and features.
