2009 Gibson Jam Master A-Style Mandolin Sheratin Brown
The season of the summer jams is here, and this Gibson mandolin has arrived just in time for pickin' and grinnin' around campfires and festival sites across the country! The Gibson Jam Master A model descends straight out of the hallowed Gibson tradition, delivering fresh new takes on one of Gibson's most popular mandolin lines. Each mandolin is crafted with the artistry that the world's most storied mandolin maker has accumulated over the years, along with a no-nonsense, hard-traveled, but much-loved look that lets these superb instruments sit in at any occasion.
The Jam Master mandolins feature several performance-enhancing elements that players of this line will certainly come to appreciate. For example, F-holes remain unbound, and there’s no neck or headstock binding. There are also no position markers on the fretboard (side dots only), and no inlay on the peghead, just the timeless Gibson logo decal.
On the design side, this A-style mandolin features a carved solid spruce top trimmed with simple single-ply binding to contrast its Sheraton Brown satin lacquer finish. The back and sides are constructed from figured maple, and the figured maple necks are carved and hand shaped to the popular “rounded V” profile. Additionally, a 1 3/16" width at the nut provides enhanced comfort and finger room across the radiused ebony fingerboard. Thirteen of the instrument’s 20 frets are clear of the body, and the frets themselves are a little bigger than those typically found on vintage mandolins – a modification that improves fingering for many players and playing styles. Other advanced constructional features include Gibson’s time-tested tone bar bracing, a radiused dovetail neck joint, a genuine bone nut, an adjustable ebony bridge and nickel Grover tuners.
The tone of this Gibson is exactly what you want out of a Mandolin. The tone is deep, rich, and powerful with a chop that only a Gibson can provide.
This pre-owned Gibson shows a shiny spot just beneath the strings where fingers rest and some light oxidation on the tailpiece. TKL hardshell case included.
