1924 Gibson A Junior Snakehead Mandolin

Photo for Ad 119378

(Serial #78644) Loar era snakehead. Excellent minus condition, Sheraton Brown top finish with dark back and sides. Looking for a good mandolin for fiddle tunes or sessions? This is it! Lots of volume in this one! The "A Junior" model was the entry level mandolin for Gibson. Even so, these are excellent instruments. They do not have body or fingerboard binding, and the truss rod is not adjustable. Then again, all Gibson mandolins prior to 1922 didn't even have truss rods. Where it counts, however - all solid woods, carved spruce top, carved birch back and sides - its the same mandolin as the higher grade versions. All hardware and finish is original. Shows some playing wear but no cracks or repairs are evident. Recent professional setup. No logo on the peghead as made by Gibson. Neck is straight and the frets are in good shape. Plays nice and has a good ringing sound. Excellent for Celtic or old-time music. Nice original hardshell case included.....USD $1650
