It was the height of the 1960s folk revival, and along came Gibson with the stylish F-25. It has a fine pair of white flamenco tap plates, and its neck is a full two inches wide at the nut. Only thing is, though, it's a steel string guitar. Now, to be sure, this derivative of the B-25 has a pleasant Gibson tone. The extra wide neck is appealing to some players, too. Not much we can say or do about those tap plates, though.
