Mandolin, Style A
Factory order number unknown
Excellent minus condition due to a few nicks and dings, but nothing major. Finish is a natural top that has aged to pumpkin color and a reddish back and sides. No logo in the peghead but it has the original Gibson label inside. Missing the pickguard, but all the rest of the hardware and finish is original. No repairs.
