Excellent original condition. These are sleepers on the market. This a Fern era Gibson A style body with oval sound hole, adjustable truss rod, and the straight painted script Gibson logo. All hardware and finish is original. Very clean mandolin bought from a California collector. Great sounding mandolin with a very woody tone and yet still has the sweet round sound of the oval hole mandolins. Very loud mandolin - excellent volume. Plays very nicely too with good frets and a straight neck.
