Mandolin, Style A
Factory Order number: 3200
Orignal finish has been stipped off the mandolin, but all the hardware is original, and the pickgaurd and tailpiece are in place. The bridge is an authentic era bridge from another scraped teens A-Model that the luthier had around his shop. Three side to top/back seperations were repaired, a crack next to the end pin, and a crack in the back has been repaired.
