About This Listing


Finish: Lacquer, Amber

Body Material: Presumably Birch top, Birch back and sides.

Neck Material: Presumably Birch or Poplar.

Neck Profile: “D”

Fingerboard Radius: Flat, none

Scale Length: 13”

Nut Width: 1 3/16”

Bridge: Floating bridge, 1 1/2” string spacing, of the proper style and presumably original.

Hardware: Original tuning machines, function well but the treble side most tuner is a bit bent at the post, please see photos for detail.

Case: No case.

Repairs/Modifications: Nothing apparent, this instrument looks to be all original and in good shape!

Neck Details: Neck looks mostly arrow straight with just a little bit of wave to it, nothing I would call a twist though.

Action: About .060” all the way across, measured at the 12th fret, super low. Nice!

Fret Wear: Very little fret wear and these frets are definitely original. Very ideal.

General Cosmetic Condition: This mandolin is in pretty primo shape all around, aside from some small areas of wear that are very typical of any instrument this age. Little bit of paint chipped off around the hard edges here and there . . . One tiny crack in the back side (see photos towards the end of the set please) . . . Otherwise, it’s a very well preserved and surprisingly undamaged specimen of times far passed.

Other Notes:

 Its a solid U.S. made vintage mandolin at a good price, sounds and plays great with super low action! I have a whole lot of instruments that need listing right now so I'm taking a break from writing lengthy descriptions for the time being, but please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions if you are interested in this mandolin, as I am more than happy to answer them. Thanks for looking!
