The F-9s no-frills design has been given a minor face lift, which include single ivoroid binding on the top of the body and pearl dot fingerboard inlays while maintaining the same stunning satin Vintage Brown finish. The F-9 has all the design features that give the F-5 its legendary tone, including a hand-fitted dovetail neck joint, solid maple neck, sides and back, solid spruce top, and a hand-tuned tone chamber.

Purchased my F9 from L&M in St. John's in July 2013. Great service; great instrument. Craftsmanship and quality are top notch. Sound is beyond compare. Much more than just wood and steel. I am in love - can you tell?
