1917 Gibson A-4

Serial # 35003, FON 3419. Truly an outstanding mandolin, this A-4 is completely original and in remarkable condition. With its beautiful Handel tuners, richly hued sunburst finish and fine craftsmanship, it is an instrument to behold as much as it is to play. It is crack-free, and shows only very light wear to finish and frets. All hardware is intact and in excellent condition and the tuners work smoothly.

The A-4 has a loud and warm voice with plenty of tonal character, and it has just enough throat to appeal to the sometimes bluegrass player, too.

Set-up in our shop, the instrument plays comfortably with 11-40 gauge strings. A particularly lovely mandolin.

With original hardshell case
