1928 Gibson A0 Mandolin
(Serial No. 87742) Excellent condition. Original tight sunburst finish and hardware, Adirondack spruce top with an oval hole, flat back, dark stained mahogany back, sides and neck, truss rod, original inlaid pickguard, white script silkscreened "Gibson" peghead logo, clamshell tailpiece cover, original ebony nut. Strap button added at the tailpiece screw. These were used a lot in bluegrass as not everyone could afford a F5. Nice playing and sounding instrument with no issues. Shows a little playing wear as expected. All finish and hardware is original. Frets are fine, neck set is good, nice loud mandolin - excellent volume. Comes with a nice case.
