1917 Gibson A1 Mandolin

(Serial number 35273) Excellent restored condition. Pumpkin top finish with dark back and sides. Has the logo in the peghead, top bound only, unbound fingerboard, original Gibson label inside. All finish and hardware is original except the bridge is a modern Loar replica and the mandolin is missing the pickguard. Shows very little pick wear, neck is straight, frets are fine. There are three small repaired back cracks, but overall a nice solid mandolin. Just set up by my luthier so it plays nice and easy with good volume and tone. Excellent for Celtic, old time, classical and jazz. Comes with the original hard case.
