This 1917 F4 Oval Hole Mandolin is clearly in poor condition. However, the instrument is still structurally sound. All of the cracks have been repaired. One of the internal braces has been replaced. A previous owner had installed a pickup attachment to the pickguard which was later replaced with the mother of pearl piece grafted into the pickguard. Otherwise, the instrument is believed to be original: tuning machines, pickguard, etc. There is considerable wear and tear all over the instrument including the aforementioned repaired cracks as well as chips and worn spots in the finish. The top and back have been removed in the past for various repairs, but both pieces are firmly in place now. This instrument should be able to be enjoyed into the future without fear of further deterioration as long as it is kept in places with optimal humidity and temperature.

The original case is included as well. Though it is also in poor condition, it is fully functional; even the spring loaded release middle latch.
