Gibson A-Style Mandolin Brown Top, 1918

Gibson A-Style Mandolin Brown Top, 1918

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.

Price: $1300 CAD
