Nicely constructed and visually stunning flat-back, bent-top mandolin, with striking gold-flake purfling & pickguard, and black-white binding. Fine spruce top, mahogany back and sides with shaded varnish finish.
Thoroughly refurbished with new reproduction ebony fretboard with gold-flake stripes in original style, original bindings transferred over. New hand-made compensated ebony bridge and bone nut.
Strong tone, good action. No structural issues. Original inset gears work fine. Very healthy and easy to play.
Unlabeled, but headstock and pickguard patterns and end of fretboard indicate Stromberg-Voisinet manufacture. Rare model in excellent condition - we have seen one other in forty years!
Guaranteed 90 days by luthier-owner for structural integrity and playability. Cosmetically "as is", with period hard-shell case in good condition.
