1920 Martin Style B Mandolin
(Serial No. 7804) Excellent condition with very little playing wear. This is the early style cutout peghead with the Martin stamp embossed on the back and no decal on the front. Beautifully grained Brazilian rosewood back and sides, spruce top, herringbone rosette and back strip, and an ebony fingerboard with slotted diamond inlays. Good neck and frets, plays nice with a low action but still has plenty of volume. Great for old-time, Celtic, or jazz. Nice tortoiseshell binding and pickguard. Original tuners and engraved tailpiece cover, which shows some wear. There is a discolored area on the top where the bridge sat in the wrong place for a while. Comes with a newer hardshell case.
