1939 Gibson A50 Mandolin

Photo for Ad 120957

(Serial No. 2740G) Clean one owner mandolin with just a little pickwear. Original sunburst finish and hardware, Adirondack spruce top with F holes, dark stained nicely figured maple back, sides and neck, white script silkscreened "Gibson" peghead logo, clamshell tailpiece cover, amber tuning buttons, original ebony nut, fretboard and bridge. It has a back brace, so according to book it is an A50. These were used a lot in bluegrass as not everyone could afford a F5. Nice playing and sounding instrument with no issues. Just set up by my luthier Jerry Ray. Frets are fine, neck is straight. This has an odd stamp on the back of the peghead - its stamped "cull". I would think that would mean a second of some sort, but I see no issues with the mandolin. No breaks, cracks or refinish noted. Missing the pickguard. Good strong bluegrass sound with a woody chop. Very loud mandolin - excellent volume. Comes with the original cardboard case...USD $1500
