SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER
Case: Original Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: Mandolin is in very good condition with some imperfections that have developed over the years.

See our listing photos for a closer look.
Tech Notes: This particular instrument came from a collection buy out. It was purchased from Gruhn Guitars, and had a repair crack repair done on the lower side (that rests against the leg while playing). There are various finish cracks around the body and checking from the nitro finish. Great player at a very comfortable medium low action, with minimal relief. There is fret wear, but it is light and no way affects playability. Brand new Martin M400 80/20 strings installed.

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!Devin, L'arrivee D-60
