This mandola came to us as part of a large estate collection. We do not have many details on it - there is no label, only "ERA" letters on the headstock. We believe it may have been made in the 1960s. Flatback A-style with round hole, spruce top, non-adjustable bridge. Scale length is approximately 16 inches. There is a previously repaired top crack near the treble-side edge that appears to be stable, and overall playability is good. The mandola has a warm, sustained tone. Chipboard case included (good condition though lining shows some wear).
