Gibson MB-4 Banjo-Mandolin (used)

Sale price $ 810.00 Regular price $ 900.00

Likely dating to 1925 (factory order number on dowelstick of 11439-14 falls just outside the published range of 1924-25, after which time Gibson went to a 4-digit system). It has a wooden dowelstick rather than coordinator rods, so it's a pre-trap-door model. Head is a plastic replacement, which our senior luthier re-coated to look like new. He also disassembled the instrument to clean and polish all parts, touch up frets, and set up with new compensated bridge. In excellent playing condition; no structural issues. Original hard case is included!

11-inch head, hollow tone-chamber rim, maple neck, wood strut, ebony fretboard extends over head, bound white, round hooks and retaining tube, notched tension hoop, shaped & bound headstock with "The Gibson" pearl inlays.
