1915 Gibson A4 Mandolin
(Serial No. 23569) Beautiful excellent condition. The A4 was the top of the line for the Gibson A style mandolins. It has the black top finish with a reddish back and sides, a pearl logo and peghead inlay, bound top and back, and a bound ebony fingerboard with treble extension. The hardware is all original including the inlaid Handel tuners, but the pickguard is missing. Nice big woody sound from this mandolin with good bass! Neck is straight, neck angle is good and the frets are in great shape. Just set up so plays like silk. Shows almost no playing wear little playing wear and very little of the the usual nicks and dings. Excellent for Celtic, old time and jazz. Comes with a nice original hard case.
