Mandolin, Style A2
Factory order number unknown
EXC This is an exceptionally sweet A- 2 in really fine condition. It has the really cool original and rare aluminum topped bridge, original tailpiece and original pickguard. The spruce top has the brown finish and the back and sides are finished likewise. Great tone and volume and playability. Pearl "The Gibson" script on the headstock. The tuning pegs have been replaced and are reversed and work fine. The case is one of the very best I've ever seen!
