Sloan A5 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 119390

Howdy folks, up for your consideration is an A5 deluxe mandolin that I finished in the spring of 2015. It is currently owned by Caleb Klauder of The Foghorn String Band in Portland, Oregon. While on a southeast tour, Caleb stopped by for a visit to my shop that year and played a few of my mandolins. Shortly after, I sent him this A5 mandolin to play as a backup and to get my instruments out to his area in the NW. I have recently finished an F4 that I'm sending to Caleb and we have both agreed to sell this one to help recoup some of the cost involved. This mandolin has been played a lot but is in great shape with only minor fret wear. I have a file of build pics for anyone interested plus several finished pictures of the mandolin. This is a professional grade handmade instrument. Needs no work...ready to play. Asking $1700 Paypal ok.
This time of year, I highly recommend over night insured shipping (or at least 2nd day) and agree to pay half of the cost to lower 48. Costs will vary depending on your location. Mandolin will ship from Portland, OR.
