In Stock

     This is a "kit" mandolin using wood parts from the GTR instrument shop where R.L. Givens was main luthier and tool and jig maker. The top graduations and finish work were completed by an unknown maker.
     Exc.(-) Condition. Top has a few marks and one sizeable ding in the binding. The back is in nice shape with just a few light scratches. Minor wear on the frets.
     Spruce top with sunburst finish. Maple back, sides and neck. Ebony fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. Ebony 2-pc. adjustable bridge.
     This mandolin is unique in that it would be a good candidate to play on stage with a pickup. The top is not lively, hence, the player would have lower feedback.
