Details of the 75th Anniversary F-10 Mandolin, the Limited Edition Vintage Granada "Hearts and Flowers" Banjo and the Inspired By Sam Bush Limited Edition '34 Fern Mandolin were revealed on the company's official website yesterday (April 16th).

Just 20 of the Vintage Granada instruments will be produced, while the Sam Bush model will have a limited run of 25.

Gibson did not say how many of the F-10 mandolins will be available, but revealed that it was inspired by the classic F-10, which appeared brand new in the 1934 Gibson catalogue.

While large parts of the mandolin are faithful to the original, a few changes have been made to the instrument "in order to meet the demands of the modern player".

Mandolins played a major part in the formation of the Gibson guitar manufacturing company at the turn of the 20th century, with the firm incorporated at Gibson Mandolin-Guitar in 1902.
