1924 Gibson A2 "Snakehead" Mandolin

Photo for Ad 117490

(Serial No. illegible, FON 1198X) Excellent structural condition, blonde top finish with darker nicely figured birch back and sides. A straight original mandolin showing some honest playing wear. I got this from a picker at a music store, who played this mandolin almost every day. No repairs or structural issues. Just been set up by one of the top repair shops on the East Coast. Has the pearl logo and inlay in the peghead, bound top, back, and fretboard, ebony fretboard, reproduction Cumberland Acoustic adjustable ebony bridge, original tuners, tailpiece and pickguard. This is the same mandolin as the A2Z, however it has the double soundhole rosette rings and the label shows A2. This is a classic Loar era instrument with the sound that you expect from this period. Just set up by my luthier so it plays smoothly with excellent volume and tone. This is a great sounding mandolin - an excellent demonstration of why many pickers believe the snakeheads are the best oval hole mandolins ever made by Gibson. If you can live with some playing wear this is a deal on a snakehead A2. Comes with the original hardshell case...USD $3750
