Lyon & Healy Flat-back Mandolin, early 1920s (used)

Regular price $ 648.00

Well constructed flat-back mandolin in great condition. All solid woods, spruce top, mahogany back and sides, poplar neck, colorful purflings.

Unlabeled, but Lyon & Healy (Chicago) 2-point pattern with somewhat different appointments, probably produced for another distributor.

Thoroughly reconditioned and upgraded with new rosewood faceplate, fretboard underlay and binding, new bone nut and refinished neck. Crack in headstock fully professionally repaired - stronger than new, undetectable and guaranteed. No other major repairs or ongoing structural issues.

Excellent action, nice tone. Original inset gears work fine. Very healthy and easy to play. Guaranteed 90 days by luthier-owner for structural integrity and playability. Cosmetically "as is". With excellent original hard-shell case.

Shipping is $50 within the continental US.
