If you're looking for a quality vintage Gibson mandolin that won't break the bank, we're pleased to offer you this perfect solution! This A-50 came to us looking a bit dirty and worse for wear, but we must say it cleaned up quite beautifully with a bit of care and attention. Underneath the grime was a mandolin that is in original condition (with the exception of the truss rod cover and pickguard screws) and free of any previous repairs. The pickguard, bridge, tuners, nut, frets, and finish are all in factory-original form and unchanged. The neck is quite slim with a 1 3/16" nut width, so it's ideal for those who prefer a more player-friendly taper! Includes the original chipboard-style case.
