Mandolin, Style F2
Serial 89912
Factory order number unknown


has a true red sunburst, spectacular flamey woods on the sides and back, pearl logo, bound top, and a bound ebony fingerboard with treble extension, truss rod in the neck, and the original adjustable bridge. The action is good and the sound is excellent. BIG tone and volume! Nice woody sound from this mandolin with good bass. Neck is straight, neck angle is good and the frets show very little wear. There is some picking wear on the mandolin but no repairs are evident. Finish and hardware are original. BTW, the bridge is in the right place - what you see in the pics is a shadow.
