Very good original condition. I bought this one from the son of the original owner. This a Fern era Gibson A style body with oval sound hole, truss rod, and the straight painted " The Gibson" logo. All hardware and finish is original. There is some pickwear and finish checking, as this mandolin was played, not stored away. Significant capo scars on the back of the neck. sounds GREAT! Very woody tone and yet still has the round sound of the oval hole mandolins. Very loud mandolin - excellent volume. Plays very nicely too with good frets and a straight neck. Comes with the original case.
