Vintage 1940's Gibson A-1 A-Style Mandolin Tobacco Sunburst w/ Case


Vintage 1940's Gibson A-1 A-Style Mandolin Tobacco Sunburst w/ Case

$ 799.95
This Vintage 1940's Gibson A-1 Mandolin is in excellent condition and is a fantastic player! This mandolin shows one hairline crack on the back of the body (see pictures), but this crack is tight and the mandolin appears to be structurally sound. The tuners have been replaced at some point in the instrument's past with a similarly aged set of 4 in-line keys with cream buttons. Also, the pickguard is not present. Other than those items, this mandolin is in fantastic playing shape and sounds excellent. The neck is straight and the action is low making for easy chording all the way up the neck. The frets are in excellent condition. This mandolin has plenty of the chop and woody tone you would expect from a Gibson mandolin of this vintage. This mandolin will come complete with a non-original newer style chipboard case. This one is ready to go! Awesome deal on a fantastic sounding Gibson A-1!
