Here's a truly unique and highly desirable instrument. Gibson produced A-style amplified mandolins by mounting a pickup to the soundboard, and also a solid body electric mandolin. This electric Florentine-style mandolin with a top mounted pickup was the only model ever catalogued and they are quite rare.
This beauty has a carved spruce top with the venerable Gibson mandolin-sized P-90 pickup, a two-piece carved birds-eye maple back, chocolate brown stained maple sides and a sleek mahogany neck. This all-original example has gold-plated hardware, bound neck and body and a triple-bound pickguard. The condition of this hard-to-find model is spectacular, with only a slight finish blemish on the back and a whisper of fret wear.
The pick up sounds terrific, with that full throated roar that is the hall mark of the Gibson P-90, and examples this rare are becoming rarer day by day.
$3,495.00 with desirable original tan/pink oblong hard case.
