1916 Gibson A1 Mandolin

(Serial number 28062) Excellent 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. Shows very little pick wear, neck is straight, frets are fine. No repairs or refinish noted. Just set up by luthier Marty Beeson so it plays nice and easy with good volume and tone. Excellent for Celtic, old time and jazz. Here is a short video clip of this instrument played by Nathan Beaumont of the Remedy Tree band in Brandon, FL. Comes with the original hard case.
