An “F5-T” is built like my top-of-the-line “F5-S”, except it features single ply binding and less flame in the Canadian maple. Neither of these specs negatively affected the “F5-T”s great voicing. They just helped make the price more affordable!

NEW for 2014:
Nickel Hardware & Black Tuner Buttons

List price $1200.
