If you wanted to start playing mandolin but didn’t want to get a cheapo starter, or maybe if you've been playing for a bit and want that vintage look without breaking the bank, this might be the mandolin for you.

We just cleaned her up and added some brand new strings and she plays great!  There are signs of use for sure.  There’s some fret wear, some dings, and one on the bass side point that pulled at the binding a touch, but the neck is good and it sounds really nice.

Mall original save the missing pickguard.  Original case.
