Superb 100-year-old Gibson A-4 mandolin. The instrument features a spruce top with maple back & sides finished in a subtle shellac red burst finish, ebony fingerboard with a recent professional refret, rare and desirable beautifully ornate Handel tuners and original engraved tailpiece cover. The headstock is decorated with the classic Fleur-de-lis and 'The Gibson' inlays. This is a fantastic condition instrument with fantastic tone to match. Comes with the original 'Faultless' purple velvet lined hard case, made by Geib & Schaefer.
