A very cool and distinctive electric Gibson mandolin in a bright orange custom color. This mandolin was one of two made to introduce the model at the 1953 NAMM show. This model is a very usable eight string electric instrument with a real mandolin sound. The mandolin shows a few small marks , but is in super clean original condition. My friend acquired this from a lady about 15 years ago who had no idea what it was and was carrying it in a pillow case. At the time He did a bit of looking into it and was made to understand that there was another one out there, and was told they were made for the NAMM show in 1953, which makes sense as they appear to be cataloged in 1954. It is now in a period correct appropriate case .
