Here we have a collector’s grade bowl-back mandolin from the famed C.F. Martin & Co. with beautiful highly-figured Brazilian rosewood back and sides, that’s as nice to play as it is to behold!
This rare mandolin features a spruce top with blue-heart abalone inlaid rosette and border trim. Its decorative Brazilian rosewood overlaid peghead is carved in the Martin signature open style and the highly decorated, pearl-inlaid pickguard and fingerboard feature some of Martin’s most beautiful inlay patterns. The tone is clear and balanced as one would expect from a Martin made instrument and the action is very playable.
The instrument is in nice original condition, with one professionally repaired back rib separation and 2 replaced tuner buttons. This is a collectable treasure that’s approaching its 120th anniversary!
$1,850.00 including contemporary hard shell case.
