ca. 1895 Howe Orme Style 3 Mandolin (Mandolinetto) EXC +++ This is a museum quality condition example of this cylinder top design but it also plays and sounds terrific with fine volume. Classic aged Adirondak spruce top is crack free as are the brazilian rosewood back and sides. Simple rosewood peghead overlay and original tuning pegs that work just fine. The label is in fine shape and the serial number #0976 appears there as well as being stamped into the top of the headstock. Original bridge is fitted perfectly to the 'humped' cylinder top. Original tailpiece with the May 15,1894 Patent stamp. And the hard violin style case is also in fine shape including the perfectly working spring latches.
There are lots more pictures of this guitar at my actual website which can be found at http://www.vintageinstruments.com. Thanks
