The result of over a year of close development with the legendary musician, this signature model mandolin is closely based on Ricky’s 1923 Lloyd Loar F-5—an instrument revered for its tone and playability. The light Cremona Sunburst finish gracefully accents the premium, red spruce top and maple back and sides. With a tap-tuned top for crisp chops and articulate lines, exquisite binding and headstock inlay, and a comfortable “speedneck” profile—an exact replica of Ricky’s F-5—the Ricky Skaggs Distressed Master Model represents the finest in quality and craftsmanship.
