Case: Chipboard case

Description: This Gibson A mandolin has had it's share of work, but it plays great and is ready to find a new home. The finish and pickguard are both original to the instrument. The bridge appears to be early but not original to the mandolin according to our esteemed luthier. The nut measures 1 3/16" and has been replaced, as have the tuners. Frets 1-5 are new, as are the last 4. The logo obviously isn't original, but someone did a pretty nice job of inscribing "The Gibson". As far as previous repairs, it looks as if the headstock "wings" were re-glued, and a small shim was added underneath the fingerboard. A great-playing little mandolin! On consignment.
