1913 Martin Style 3 Mandolin

One of Martin’s better mandolins of the day, their Style 3, with heart-of-abaone shell rosette and fingerboard inlays and floral pattern set into an inlaid tortoiseshell pickguard, genuine Ivory nut, saddle, and top binding, and hand-engraved tailpiece cover and tuning machine coverplates. #3749 11/18/13 FHM hand-written in pencil on the underside of the top, as was the custome of the day. FHM was Frank Henry Martin, who was running the show at the time. In beautiful original condition and totally intact, with no repairs of any kind ever needed. Original varnish finish with minor playing wear near the pickguard, shows love. Beautiful low original action. Could use extremely minor fret trimming. $1295 w/ossc as is
