Old Wave C# Mandolin. Great vintage tone with modern playability. Serial Number 159. I believe it was built in the 90’s. I bought it from another Cafe member several years ago and it was my main mandolin in a string jazz swing band. The mandolin has been played and has some wear to show, the worst being a pick wear mark from a prior owner. The Varnish finish is worn around the neck from lots of playing, and there was a tiny area of separation on the back center seam that I had promptly glued and cleated by an experienced luthier. I installed a K&K internal pickup for exceptionally noisy live gigs. Overall a great sounding mandolin that plays very easy with low action and modern frets. Asking $2,000, buyer pays shipping. Standard donation to the cafe and 48 hour trial period. Buyer pays shipping both ways if you return. Thanks!
