A very sound and original Gibson A mandolin with no cracks and no sign of structural repairs. Neck is straight, neck angle is excellent, and while the frets show some wear they have a lot of miles left and it plays cleanly. Tailpiece cover is not the original, which had gone missing before this mandolin landed at Gryphon. The tuners and pickguard are original and in good shape. The ebony bridge is the correct style but probably isn't the original. The nice Sheraton brown finish is original with wear as shown.
