An intriguing instrument from the early 20th century, this Weymann bowl back mandolin has a bent spruce top and a back composed of 36 Brazilian rosewood ribs. Deluxe appointments include ivoroid top binding with fancy purfling around the top and soundhole, a tortoise plastic pickguard, a Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay, and 4-on-a-side tuners with engraved covers and ivoroid buttons. This mandolin could use some work (sold AS-IS, see Details section below), but cosmetically it’s in very good/excellent condition.
