(Serial No. Z635 13) Excellent minus condition with a dark sunburst finish front and back. Bought from the family of the original owner here in Richmond, VA. This is a nice A style with F-shaped sound holes with a carved spruce top and mahogany back and sides. Nut width is 1 3/16 inch.Fretboard is flush with the top. Classic "Gibson" decal logo above the truss rod cover on the peghead. Top bound only. All hardware and finish is original but missing the guard. The original buttons were crumbling and have been replaced with new exact repros. Shows some finish checking and the usual nicks and dings of well-loved instrument played for over 50 years. Frets are fine, neck is straight and it was just set up by my luthier Jerry Ray. It plays fine with a nice low action and has the classic Gibson post war sound. This model has a good bluegrass pedigree - many groups used these mandolins in bluegrass as they were much more affordable than the F-5's. Comes with a newer hard case....USD $1350
