1928 Gibson Black Top A
Absolutely wonderful vintage Gibson oval mandolin! Beautiful, articulate, seasoned tone that while it has that great full voice, the bass is not overly "tubby" like some of these can be. Of course being from 1928 it has it's share of dings, scrapes, etc., but the mandolin is crack free with no separations and no top sinkage. No evidence of prior repairs and none needed. The setup is low and comfortable and it plays great all the way up the fretboard with ease and clarity. Appears to be all original and comes with it's original hardshell case, also in good condition for it's age.
