Mandolin, Style A2
Factory order number unknown
Excellent minus condition, Sheraton Brown top finish with dark back and sides. Peghead has "The Gibson" logo inlaid in pearl. The fretboard as well as both the top and back of the body are bound in grained celluloid. All hardware and finish is original showing some honest playing wear, but nothing major. Missing the pickguard. Neck is straight and the frets are in good shape. Plays nice and has a good ringing sound. Excellent for Celtic or old-time music. Nice original hardshell case included.
