Overall length is 28 in. (71.1 cm.), 11 1/4 in. (28.6 cm.) width, and 2 in. (5.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 15 3/4 in. (400 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/8 in. (35 mm.). This beautiful Mandola is all original and complete with the exception of the pickguard, which is missing. There are a couple of seam repairs on the back edge, cleanly resealed but still feelable. There are a few small chips and scrapes to the top finish, and some light pickwear by the soundhole. The top finishn appears to have been lightly polished out at some point, but retains a very nice original color. An excellent playing and sounding Mandola, with very good projection and a well-rounded tone. Definitely one of the nicer H-2's we have had. Excellent - Condition.
