Gibson A Mandolin 1906 w/OHSC


Gibson A Mandolin 1906 w/OHSC

$50.00 (Fixed shipping cost)

Product Description

A powerful-sounding early A mandolin from Gibson with a serial number of 6986 (shipped in 1907) and a FON including stamped "order No 435" indicating 1906 production, according to "Spann's Guide to Gibson". This mandolin features a silk-screened "The Gibson" logo in gold paint on the headstock, original tuning machines, original bridge, and original finish. The bridge is not original. We have done the following repair work to this mandolin:

- neck reset
- repaired neck heel crack
- new radiused fingerboard
- new frets
- cleaned original finish

The mandolin, due to the neck reset and new fingerboard, has a taller bridge than was originally found on the early A mandolins. This gives the mandolin greater volume, and this one really projects. The body, top, sides, and back are crack free. The neck is straight and comfortable. The action is perfect. There is an inlaid tortoise pickguard in the top, bordered in abalone.
