Strad-O-Lin Mandolin, ca. 1950 (used)

Regular price $ 425.00

Well made and thoroughly reconditioned mandolin from Strad-O-Lin's lower range, with laminate top. Top grain and back curl figure are artificially applied. Excellent condition with no structural issues. All original except for new exact repro pickguard. Original adjustable bridge modified for intonation compensation.

Low-cost in their day, Strad-O-Lins are known for surprisingly good sound in spite of simplicity in design. Solidly built and among the best values in a vintage arch-top mandolin. A clear, bright tone at a fraction of the cost of a Gibson A model, and better than most modern plywood archtops.

Professionally set up and guaranteed 90 days for structural integrity by luthier-owner. Cosmetically sold as is. No case included.
