Here we’re looking at a Gibson Style A mandolin in overall good and largely original condition. The A-Style or ‘Teardrop’ body is built with a hand-carved, arched Spruce top paired with a carved, arched Mahogany back. The sides and neck are also Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge.

Seen here is a Gibson A-Style mandolin dating to 1918. The carved, oval sound hole top is Sitka Spruce, the sides are Maple as is the carved back. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony. A single layer of binding was applied to the top, only – not the back, fingerboard, or head. The headstock does not have, or has lost, a Gibson logo. The original pick guard, which would have been celluloid, is long gone.
