sku: 90U-206689
A nice sounding Gibson made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, this A-4 features a red sunburst finish, paddle headstock, and tuners with Handel buttons. The pickguard is missing. It was re-fretted in 2015 by our repair shop, and has one repaired top crack by the tailpiece. The original hardshell case is included, but it is in rough condition. This mandolin is in very good-plus condition.   More Details...
