The Parlok, Knoxville, TN

1930s Gibson A-50 (wide-body)

$1,600

 

This is an unusual model mandolin that was only manufactured from 1933-1941. It has a significantly wider body than the more common A-50 model. This mandolin has a ton of mojo with lots of play wear and finish crazing that just add to the vintage charm. It definitely has that unmistakable pre-war Gibson vibe and a nice mellow tone. Includes an unusual (probably non-original) hard-shell case. We've never seen one like it -- the case itself is definitely a conversation piece.
