1913 Shutt Professional Style A-1 Mandolin EXC This mandolin made by The Shutt Mandolin and Guitar Company in Topeka, Kansas has many innovations that appeared later on Gibson's "Loar" F-5. Carved spruce top with F-holes and mahogany back and sides. Twelve frets to the body with an elevated fingerboard and elevated pickguard. It's all original from the tuning pegs to the tailpiece with a little bit of the celluloid binding missing around the bottom there. Tortoise-oid peghead overlay is the only one I've seen on a Shutt mandolin. The label is in fine shape but is placed so that it is practically impossible to photograph. Nice picture of Albert Shutt on it though. Chipboard case.
