    Default Levin Aristocrat 2-Point, circa 1945

    I just received this yesterday, after purchasing it at auction in June. Restrung it with D'Addario XS strings. Since there isn't too much information about these I thought I'd post a couple of photos and a short video clip. It sound better in person than via the iPhone video. I am very happy.

    Very nice mandolin.
    I have a Levin model 42 that would be the third in the top-tier of levin mandolins.

    I am curious about aristokrats as they look very nice. Where did you bought it, I haven't spotted one for sale in several years.

    Congrats for the adquisition!
