Vintage Gibson A-1 Mandolin
The A-1 was an upgraded version of the very popular A- model, and features a Bound Body, Rope Style rosette and Tortoise Clamp on Pickguard. This Mandolin is built with a bookmatched spruce top and one-piece birch back.
The instrument plays very nicely and with the warmth and projection (which the early Gibson mandolins are prized for.) There is quite a bit of wear and tear throughout the entire instrument but that is to be expected when looking into an instrument that is 111 years old.
This Pre-Owned Mandolin is in Good Condition with many cosmetic dings, scratches, and chips. There are also some stable cracks in the fretboard(see photos).
