The Gibson A Style Mandolin, 1918
Solid Carved Spruce Top
Solid Carved Birch Back and Sides
In very good condition for an instrument this old.
Has some finish scuffs and scratches but no cracks or repairs.
Neck is straight, could maybe use a little set up at the bridge, but plays well.
Serial number is written in pencil and is almost impossible to make out, but from what I can see it is 46,XXX which would put it at 1918, but the lack of a logo on the peghead may mean it is earlier?
Comes with a new hard shell case, I do not have the original case.
