1929 Gibson Style A0 Mandolin

(Serial No. 87337 FON 9918) Excellent original condition. These are sleepers on the market. This a Fern era Gibson A style body with an oval sound hole and the straight painted script The Gibson logo. All hardware and finish is original. This mandolin was not a case queen. The finish looks original, but was possibly buffed on the top. Great sounding mandolin with a very woody tone and yet still has the sweet round sound of the oval hole mandolins. Very loud mandolin - excellent volume. Plays very nicely too with good frets and a straight neck. Has some finish checking on the back, a strap button screw hole, and the typical nicks and dings from playing a well loved instrument. No repairs- there is some crystalizing on the pickguard. Comes with a case.
