Gibson A50 Mandolin 1940's "Sunburst"

Regular price $1,199.00
This Gibson A50 plays well and sounds great! Check out the beautiful quilted maple back. It does have normal wear and tear and checking one would expect to see on a 65+ year old instrument. Due to Gibson's inconsistent and/or lack of serial #'s, dating their earlier pieces is difficult. We believe this to be a 1940's A50 based on the specs and hardware: note the riveted tuning machines typical of wartime era instruments and the flathead screws typical of early 20th century instruments. It is missing the pickguard (hence the worn spot where the pickguard would have been), but everything else appears to be original. This piece does not include a case.

There are a couple of spots that appear to be cracks, but are NOT ACTIVE (please see pics). This is a solid instrument.

9.25% sales tax will be added for TN residents.
