1926 Martin Style AK Mandolin
(Serial No. 13317) Mandolin is very clean and in excellent condition. This is the early style peghead with the Martin stamp embossed on the back of the peghead and inside on the back strip but no decal on the front. Front, back and sides are figured Hawaiian Koa wood. Ebony fingerboard with small dot inlays and ebony bridge. Good neck set and original bar frets, neck is straight, plays nice with a low action but still has plenty of volume. No cracks or repairs, but does have some minor scratches here and there. Good strong volume with a nice tone. Great for old-time, Celtic, or jazz. Nice original rosewood binding and celluloid tortoiseshell pickguard. Original tuners and tailpiece cover. Comes with a original somewhat beat softshell case.
