1954 Gibson A-40

$ 1,100.00

1954 Gibson A-40 in excellent vintage condition. There are various small dings and pecks here and there and, of course finish checking, but the mandolin is in extremely good condition for it's age. It was just set up by one of Austin's best luthiers and it plays like absolute butter in every position with no issues at all. The tuners have been replaced with period correct Kluson tuners, the bridge has been replaced with a high quality ebony adjustable bridge, and the tailpiece cover is a modern aftermarket piece (super cool in our opinion). This mandolin has a very charming woody, fundamental tone that is very even across the tonal spectrum and is super fun to play. This would make a very cool vintage American made alternative to the majority of import instruments in this price range. Flat fretboard, 1-3/16" nut width. Comes with a modern hardshell case.
