USED Pre-War Gibson A-Style Mandolin

Thank you for shopping with The Upper Bout!
The Upper Bout is proud to present to you this Gibson A-style Mandolin. This piece is in good shape for it's age. It does display pick marks, rub marks, and general playwear. This instrument is structurally sound. There is a crack on the paddle headstock on the treble-side glue joint. This mandolin is very playable, but a neck reset could improve the action. You will have a difficult time finding another piece quite like this one, so get it while it's here in our shop.

Note: Tuners, bridge, case, and pickguard are not original

  • Spruce top
  • Maple back and sides
  • Ebony fingerboard Rosewood bridge
  • Tortoise shell pickguard
