Strad-O-Lin Mandolin, 1938 (used)

Regular price $ 589.00


Made with solid woods throughout, including spruce top, producing a fine sound at a fraction of the cost of a prewar Gibson A model. Stamped on inside back, Jan 4, 1938.

Excellent condition and playability, with original pickguard, tailpiece, tuners and adjustable rosewood bridge. Low-cost in their day, Strad-o-Lins are known for sounding "better than they ought to" and this is one of the best sounding ones we have come across! Well constructed and among the best values in a solid-wood vintage arch-top mandolin.

Fully reconditioned with no major repairs or structural issues. First six frets have been replaced, bridge compensated for improved intonation.

Professionally set up and guaranteed 90 days for structural integrity and playability by luthier-owner. Sold cosmetically as-is. New hardshell case is included.
