1925 Gibson A Junior Mandolin

1925 Gibson A Junior Mandolin

Slightly the less from a bit of neglect, this is still a genuine, “snake head” Loar-era Gibson mandolin and we all know just how great every single one of them sounds. Bought many years ago from a well-known dealer and in near-immaculate condition at the time, it was stored, unattended with the strings still tuned up, for the past several years. Result: the predictable; back and to some extent the sides slightly separated from the tail block, and a slight separation of the back-side seam on the treble side. The bridge (ebony, along with the fingerboard), tuners, and pickguard are original; the tailpiece questionable but insignificant. The neck is mahogany and exceptionally straight; the finish is original Gibson varnish. The frets are original and slightly worn though quite usable. This is an eminently restorable instrument, in otherwise fine condition, from the best, best, best period of Gibson mandolins, and it has no cracks whatsoever. And a bonus: a fabulous, original top-grade Gibson hard shell case with a fabulous original metal label from the music store that sold it in Rochester, NY, in 1925.
