1920 Gibson A Mandolin #54387


1920 manufacture date (traditional estimates)
1919 shipment date, according to Spann's Guide to Gibson
Mandolin, Style A
Serial 54387
Factory order number unknown


Excellent minus condition, Sheraton Brown top finish and a brownish back and sides. No logo in the peghead as built, unbound fingerboard, original Gibson label inside. Tuners, bridge and tailpiece are original. The tailpiece cover is a replacement and pickguard is missing. Shows some playing wear on the back of the neck and where the pickguard was, as well as a few nicks and dings, but overall a nice solid mandolin. Repaired top crack is cleated from the inside so it should not be a problem. Plays easy with the great round hole tone.
