    The seller says the bridge is non-original. I would not be so sure, as it could well be original to the Japanese or Korean mandolin body in this lash up.

    The listing says the "Gibson collector" will be offering more of his collection. Should be interesting to see what else he has.

    No longer available. Maybe Reverb is better about taking things down than ebay.
