Here’s a great sounding, easy playing Gibson A-1 mandolin from the Loar Era with adjustable truss rod. slim neck and the "snake" peg head. This instrument features a spruce top finished in black, with bound maple back & sides in the popular Sheraton brown finish. All original hardware is present, including the desirable "arrowhead" tuners, adjustable bridge and tailpiece. The original painted "Gibson" logo was possibly added later as some A-1s didn't have a logo originally.
The tone is rich and filled with the delightful overtones that are the hallmark of instruments from this period.
This mandolin is a joy to play with minimal fret-wear only in the first position. Snakehead A-1s are a rare commodity and one that plays and sounds like this is even rarer still.
$2,650.00 with original hard case.
Additional photos available upon request.
