1953 Martin Style A Mandolin

(Serial # A-21398) Near mint condition showing almost no wear. Original lacquer finish with a Sitka red spruce top, mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard with small dot markers, original ebony bridge and nut, 3 ply top/single ply back binding, and tortoise pickguard. Good neck and original frets, plays nicely with a low action but still has plenty of volume. Original tailpiece and tuners. Shows very little of the usual nicks and dings of a well loved instrument. No repairs noted. Great for old-time, Celtic, or jazz, or just noodling around with a mandolin. Comes with a newer hardshell case.
