Hey guys, just need some help in Identifying this Gibson Mando. I am going to an auction on Wednesday and this is up for auction. Looks like its in pretty good shape. What is a good price for this one?

Thanks!

Well lets see, truss rod, thats post 1922, and adjustable bridge.Looks like a late 20's early 30's A1. Is the back carved? Nice pick-guard too. Mabey $1000.00-$1500.00, its hard to say what an auction might bring.Good luck http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I'm agreeing with MML. It's definatly pushing 1930. Then again, maybe somebody that really knows will weigh in.
