Classical Mandolin top of the line fabricated in Chicago
Very fine to Medium carved Spruce soundboard, high grade flamed Maple back and sides straight neck little fret wear. French polish. Separate pieces attaching the top and back to the sides, Deluxe Lutherie, this type of construction makes the most powerful instrument possible, very common in the most expensive guitars too.
Missing label, pickguard and tailpiece cover only, new fret board and frets. Original Tuners including the Original Hard Shell case.
A pretty rare mandolin, this is the 1st Style A Mandolin since 1990 our shop has had.
Two professionally repaired cracks on the back, one on the heel area at the top another at the bottom on the treble side of the end block.
These were made until 1940 and sold for $135.00 when brand new - the same price as a C. F. Martin 000-42 Pearl Inlaid Brazilian Rosewood back and sides guitar.
