1916 Gibson A-1 Pumpkin Top

$ 1,700.00

Excellent sounding and playing "sweet sixteen" pumpkin top A-1. Great open, woody vintage voice with a ton of volume and pop. Very balanced and even sounding up the neck and it plays wonderfully with no issues. In overall excellent condition, this mandolin was oversprayed long ago. It was a professional job and done well and has developed a nice old patina. There are no cracks, sinkage, or separations of any kind. The original tuners work very well. The bridge has been changed to an adjustable type (the original would have been fixed) and the mandolin comes with it's original hardshell case in fair condition.
