August Pollman is best known for making the mandoline-banjo, which is a five-string banjo on a flat-top mandola body. (They are also called banjolas.) This mandoline-guitar is a scarce variation with, you can probably guess where this is going, a six-string guitar neck on a mandola body. Overall, it’s in fine structural and cosmetic condition. The back and sides are solid oak and the top is solid spruce with a nice marquetry pickguard. The original tuning pegs were swapped out for Grover Champion patent pegs, most likely sometime in the 1920s when these pegs were very popular. These pegs were designed gor gut strings and to be honest they don't do a great job of staying in tune with steel strings. Includes a new padded gig bag.
