Kenneth "Jethro" Burns may be famous as the mandolin player in the hayseed comedy duo Homer and Jethro, but he was one of the most accomplished jazz mandolinists ever.
This 1967 Gibson F-5 belonged to Jethro and was used extensively by him. It was modified for him with the removal of the fingerboard extension and the addition of the custom engraved tailpiece cover.
This mandolin (inv. #MF6694) is in VG+ condition and comes with heavy duty flight case, a letter from Jethro's son John Burns and a photo of Jethro with this instrument. Initially offered at $15,000, it has now been reduced to $10,000.
