Mandolin Brazilian Rosewood 1921
This is a wonderful, beautiful mandolin. Made in 1921, Serial number
88xx. I think it is called a style B.
This has great projection. Big full sound. Very playable with good
action. This is an amazingly nice mandolin.
Brazilian rosewood back and sides in excellent condition. It is 99 years old
and has been played so it is not in perfect new condition. But it is in very,
very good condition. The pick guard looks like it could be the original. It has
cracks in it but it is flat and stable.
The neck is in
great shape; feels good. The tuners work good. When I got it they were very
hard to turn. Put some white grease in the gears and now much better.
I had a very
good luthier work on the action. He also glued a crack that you can see in the
photos, which is now stable.
are not old, I put them on. I have a smoke free home. The mandolin does not
have much smell at all.
The case is
included. The case is very new. The case is a little big so I use a black wash
cloth to take up the extra room. I installed an Oasis humidifier in the case,
which is included for you.
It is hard to
get good photos as there is a lot of reflection.
I will ship
only to USA 48 states.
