Here's a very clean example of the unusual "wide body" Gibson A-1 mandolin. There's a slight separation of the center joint in the back near the end block (photo #26) that's tight enough it doesn't need attention.
Otherwise, the body is crack free, and the original finish is bright and clean. Tailpiece and tuners are modern replacements, and the original pick guard shows some deterioration.
Please give a call to the shop at 650-493-2131 (10:30AM to 2:00PM Pacific Time is best) and talk to Frank if you'd like more detailed description. Otherwise, the photos tell the story pretty well.
