Excellent original condition. 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. The pickguard has a broken tip and is in the case. There is some minor pickwear and finish checking. Great sounding mandolin with a 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.
