ok so i was looking up mandolins at musiciansfriend.com, just for the heck of it. and i come across this: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Gibson-F5-Distressed-Master-Model-Mandolin?sku=517396
now, at first i thought the website was screwing with me. then i saw the list price and some other mandolins and i was all WTF???!?!?!?!?!?
so like, what could POSSIBLY make an instrument worth as much as a car? does it really cost that much money to make or is gibson just trying to make a bunch of money off of something that looks pretty? i think it's just kinda ridiculous.

Gibsons overpriced? What a shock.

That mandolin probably makes you the Yngwie of mandolins.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Well... just look how pretty it is. I would definitely buy it.


If I had a couple billion dollars, and 23,000 dollars was like 2 dollars.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

yes, but why? is it made out of some special kind of wood that only grows when you water it with a million gallons of oil or what?

They keep referring to it as 'indistinguishable from the original'. It must be a replica of some legendary mandolin. Anyone have some encyclopedic mandolin knowledge?

"When i stopped playing i turned it over. Then i noticed the price tag. I almost dropped it in shock. i actually went to one of the guys working there and told him he'd priced it wrong and he told me "no, Gibson priced it wrong man."" - from the reviews
