Description

This mandolin from Vega is a rare cylinder back model (designated as "Lute Mandolin") with a beautiful Brazilian Rosewood one-piece back & sides. The figure of this particular piece of Brazilian is quite elegant. The neck is straight and the bridge, tuners and case are original.

The instrument has been played thoroughly, always a good sign tonally, but it also has several poorly repaired cracks in the top, and one in the back, as well as a headstock repair using 3 small screws as. The tailpiece cover is also missing. Due to these repairs this mandolin is bargain priced well below market value and would make an excellent project for restoration.

We are offering this rare instrument AS IS. With no guarantees or return privileges

$495 including original hard case.
