View Full Version : Gibson A9

Some weeks ago I bought a used Gibson A9, after i was convinced by the postings here, that this mandolin is a good buy.

I like this mandolin very much and for the moment I play almost only on this mandolin. And I like the simplicity of this mandolin, and especially the nice wood on the top. Its a great little mandolin!

I have created a small photo-album on my homepage, you can find it with the follwing link:

Hey Michael
Nice mandolin and I also like the simplicity which is similar to my ´27 Ajr.
I #have seen the BIN auction at german ebay and I am glad that i didn´t bid because it was in favor of you !

Enjoy !

Nice A-9! I still want one, if anybody knows of one for sale.

Congrats on your A-9. I'm glad you are pleased with it. I love mine and it still continues to improve the more I play it.

Very nice. Good job with the pictures too. Has anyone seen the A-9 on e-bay now? It's almost a blonde--very cool looking, I think. Maybe it's just the lighting though.
