This instrument has a warm strong "Gibson" tone. I'm guessing that this mandolin has been lying dormant for lots of years. I believe that frequent playing now will bring it back to life with an even more pleasant and powerful sound. No modern medium-priced mandolin will be able to match it.
I have been an active performing musician for many years, but now I am 90 years old. The only reason I am selling the instrument is that I am no longer able to use it. I believe that musical instruments were made to be used. They should not just be stored. I want it to be in the hands of someone who will use it and cherish it!!
The strings are new Martin lights. Medium gauge string would bring out an even more powerful tone. The open-geared tuners work well with very little "slop". The neck is straight. Frets and fingerboard show only minor wear. The action is comfortably low with no buzzing. Hey!! How can it get any better than this. I am selling with NO RESERVE.
Shipping will be FAST AND FREE. Payment by Paypal only. I don't do international shipping.
Oops! I almost forgot to tell you what the FREE STUFF is. A set of new Martin strings--a chord chart---Three picks of varying stiffness--- AND BEST OF ALL----a new electronic tuner! WOW!!
If you should not be happy with your purchase, please give me a chance to correct the situation without giving me any neg feedback. Pos feedback would be appreciated. Watch for further listings of my many unused instruments-----a 1906 Gibson a model mandolin----several guitars(four of them Martin)----Vega and Bacon tenor banjos--CORT 5-string---a whole bunch of violins(Maybe even one I made in 2006) I've heard that , "You can't take it with you". Sad but true! Thanks for looking and reading my rambling! BE SAFE-GET SHOT!
