1949 Martin Style A Mandolin
(Serial No. A19131) Excellent condition showing some playing wear. Nice early flat back Martin mandolin, all solid woods with a mahogany back and sides, spruce top, and an ebony fingerboard and bridge, tortoise binding and the inlaid tortoise pickguard. Original finish and hardware. Good straight neck, original ebony nut, original frets, plays nice with a low action but still has plenty of volume. The Martin decal is on the peghead, and Martin is also stamped on the inside. No cracks or repairs noted. Great for old-time, Celtic, or jazz. Comes with the original beat up soft case.
