Made in Bozeman MT and dated December 1990. Signed by Steve Carlson. This is a little cannon of a mandolin! Wonderful robust, rich, and woody tone that is very mature and seasoned. Nice bass response and mids and highs that will cut a mix like a bell. As with any instrument that has been played often for 30 years this mandolin has it's share of player wear and dings but is 100% crack free and in need of no repairs. Comes with it's original harshell case in good condition.
