Mandolin, Style F2
Factory order number unknown
Beautiful condition. Looks to have been refinished and re-inlayed on the headstock (and a headstock crack repaired) by Gibson circa 1939/1940. Sunburst spruce top and figured maple back and sides. Good action and sweet full tone. All original hardware including tailpiece, pickguard, and tuning pegs ... rosewood adjustable bridge is a replacement. Original hard shell case in nice shape
