1930's Kalamazoo Oriole

$ 1,200.00

A great little vintage mandolin with tons of character! The instrument just received an extensive setup that included a re-fret. Fun and easy to play with a very charming, woody, seasoned tone. In original condition (aside from a replacement tailpiece) showing no cracks or separations and no evidence of prior repairs, and none needed. The finish shows checking and small dings consistent with an instrument of this age. There is s degrading/crackling line on the mid portion of the pick guard, not effecting it structurally. This would make a wonderful vintage, USA made alternative to the import mandolins available in this price range. Spruce top, maple back and sides (one piece back), tortoise binding. Flat fretboard, 1-3/16" nut width. Comes with a nice Boulder Alpine carry bag.
