1928 Martin Style A Mandolin
(Serial No. 13844) Excellent structural condition showing some playing wear. Nice early flat back Martin mandolin with mahogany back and sides, Adirondack spruce top, and an ebony fingerboard and bridge, tortoise binding and the inlaid tortoise pickguard. Original 9" wide body. Original finish and hardware. Good straight neck, original ebony nut, original bar frets, plays nice with a low action but still has plenty of volume. The Martin stamp is on the back of the peghead and also stamped on the inside. No cracks or repairs noted. Great for old-time, Celtic, or jazz. Comes with a hardshell case.
