Very mature and open-sounding two-point oval hole mandolin from the noted maker Bill Bussmann.

Oval soundhole.

Two-point mandolin with interesting shape… The Old Wave C# model has two asymmetrical cutaway horns. Oval soundhole.
Highly figured Maple back, sides, neck and peghead veneer. Ebony radiused fingerboard with clever corner inlays that give you position reference from the top or from the side. Ebony bridge with fixed fossil ivory intonated saddle. Handsome amber sunburst.

Abalone “wave” inlaid at top of snakehead peghead. Pearl nut. Radiused Ebony fingerboard shows recent professional fret work, with no fret wear showing. Lovely speed neck that feels great. Upper middle seam of back was professionally reglued with a cleat.

Great typical oval-hole sound. Organic sound, with woody resonance. Comes with hard case.
