Photo for Ad 117471

(Serial No. 15234) Excellent minus condition, Gloss natural finish, 2-point teardrop shaped body, carved spruce top with ivoroid-bound oval soundhole, amber-stained flamed maple sides and carved back, ivoroid bound topand back, maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard, 24 frets, small pearl dot inlays, original ebony bridge, engraved clamshell tailpiece, Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay with cutout, inside on the the back has "Martin" stamp, original Waverly tuners with ivoroid buttons and stamping in plate, original tortoise plastic pickguard, 13-1/8" scale length, 1-1/8" nut width. This is an excellent and rare instrument (only 232 made) that was possibly their most successful mandolin tonally, comparable to the beautiful Lyon & Healy's top line. This is the model played by Bill Bolick of the famous country brother duo, the Blue Sky Boys. Easy action, nice sound, just set up by my luthier so it plays nicely. Very sweet and warm tone - this mandoln would record beautifully. Only repair noted is the back center seam has been glued and cleated, which is not visible from the outside. Comes with the original fitted hardshell case....USD $2750
