    Default Unknown vintage mandolin

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/vintage-8-str...UAAOSwY~1aN-YY

    Does anyone here have any ideas on what this could be?

    I like the look of it.

    Thanks!

    Current bid $49.
    That is enough for it in my opinion.

    You want a picture of the neck joint from the side. It looks like it hasn't been played. Many times they went under a bed because they couldn't be played as the neck joint had come loose and Martin is correct, it is a Kay.
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.

    I had one like it many years ago and sure enough the neck pulled loose, cost more to have it fixed than what it was worth...So it went into the wood pile.....
