1920 Gibson A3 Mandolin
(Serial No. 56487) Excellent minus condition, white top finish. Norman Blake has a video out where he uses one. Plays very easy and has strong volume with a very balanced sound - this would be a good session instrument. Excellent for Celtic, jazz, classical, or old-time music. Neck is straight, neck set is good, and the frets are fine. The body finish is original. No repairs noted. All hardware is original except it is missing the pickguard. Nice low action so it plays very easy. Comes with the original hardshell case.
