Seller: jimtib (1,250) 100%, Location: WEST MIDLANDS, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 332079219727 VINTAGE GIBSON MANDOLIN 1916 - STYLE 'A' - PUMPKIN TOP. SERIAL # 32088 WITH HARD CASE & KEYS: I'M CUTTING DOWN ON MY MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS AS ROOM NEEDED FOR MY GROWING GUITAR COLLECTION. I BOUGHT THIS MANDOLIN AS I HAVE AN INTEREST IN BLUEGRASS. I'M A GUITARIST AND DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT MANDOLIN'S AND I WILL GIVE AN HONEST DESCRIPTION AS FAR AS I'M ABLE WITH MY LIMITED KNOWLEDGE. IT'S IN EXACTLY THE SAME CONDITION AS WHICH I PURCHASED IT ABOUT 5-6 YEARS AGO AND IT'S HAD MINIMUL USE, AS I'VE TENDED TO PRACTISE ON MY CHEAPER OZARK. FROM WHAT LITTLE RESEARCH I'VE DONE RECENTLY, IT IS ALL ORIGINAL EXCEPT FOR THE 'ADJUSTABLE BRIDGE', WHICH MUST HAVE BEEN ADDED AT A LATER DATE AS GIBSON DIDN'T FIT THESE UNTIL POST-1921 (NOT ENTIRELY SURE ABOUT THAT SO PLEASE DON'T TAKE THAT AS 'GOSPEL'), I WOULD SURMISE THAT IT IS A 'GIBSON' REPLACEMENT BRIDGE: IT'S MISSING THE ORIGINAL PICKGAURD, BUT THESE CAN STILL BE 'PICKED-UP' ON EBAY OR OTHER SOURCE. THE BODY HAS THE USUAL DINGS ASSOCIATED WITH A 100 YEAR OLD VINTAGE INSTRUMENT, BUT NOTHING MAJOR THAT WOULD AFFECT THE PLAYABILITY OF THE INSTRUMENT IN ANY WAY. IT IS IN GOOD PLAYABLE CONDITION, WITH NO CRACKS OR OBVIOUS DAMAGE TO THE BODY; AND ALL THE BINDINGS SEEMS TO BE INTACT WITH NO VISABLE ISSUES THAT I CAN SEE OR AM AWARE OF. THE FINGERBOARD HAS MINIMUL WEAR WITH NO INDENTATIONS TO SPEAK OF AND THE FRETS ARE GOOD WITH LITTLE SIGN OF WEAR. THE NECK-VARNISH IS WORN ON THE BACK JUST BELOW THE HEADSTOCK. THERE IS A SLIGHT BOW IN THE NECK, WHICH CAN BE EASILY RECTIFIED BY A LUTHIER IF REQUIRED AND THE STARTING PRICE REFLECTS THIS TO ALLOW ANY REQUIRED RESTORATION WORK TO BE DONE BY THE BUYER TO BRING IT UP TO A VERY GOOD STANDARD. THERE IS A NEW-ISH HARD CASE THAT CAME WITH THIS MANDOLIN, COMPLETE WITH CASE KEYS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR REQUIRE MORE PHOTO'S THEN PLEASE MESSAGE ME VIA EBAY AS THIS MANDOLIN IS ON A 'SOLD AS SEEN' BASIS. I'LL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS. SHIPPING WILL BY COURIER, TO UK IS £10.00: I WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE. THE WEIGHT IS 2.2 Kg UNPACKED; AND APPROXIMATELY BETWEEN 2.5 TO 3.0 Kg WITH PACKING: BUYER CAN ARRANGE OWN COURIER IF REQUIRED. CAN ALSO COLLECT IF LOCAL; AND I CAN DELIVER UP TO 25 (+ OR - A FEW) MILE RADIUS FOR £5.00, ON THE CONDITION PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED - SORRY NO COD. I WOULD ADVISE PAYING AN EXTRA COUPLE OF £GBP FOR INSURANCE ON THIS ITEM. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. PLEASE ASK FIRST FOR AN INVOICE AS THE SHIPPING COST WILL VARY DEPENDING ON THE DESTINATION COUNTRY: I HAVE HAD TO PUT A FIGURE OF £20.00 IN THE BOX BUT THAT WILL BE INCORRECT, AS THIS WILL OBVIOUSLY VARY. IN ALL CASES, I WILL ONLY CHARGE THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING. Condition: GOOD CONDITION WITH USUAL DINGS ETC. FOR AN INSTRUMENT OF THIS AGE, Brand: The Gibson, Body Style: A Style, Number of Strings: 8, Country/Region of Manufacture: United States
