Mandolin, Style A
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 as well as a few nicks and dings, but overall a nice solid mandolin. Repaired top crack at the upper bass bout is cleated from the inside so it should not be a problem. Plays easy with the great round hole tone. Comes with a non-original soft case.
