Description

Excelllent condition. All Original.
SN: 848763

Really nice high-end Gibson EM-200 electric mandolin. Sunburst finish.
Mahogany solid-body with double cutaway, 8 strings, P-90 pickup, multi-laminate pickguard, adjustable bridge.
Gold hardware, including kluson 4-on-a-plate tuners, strap buttons, pickguard hardware and 2-pc “Gibson” engraved tailpiece.

Blackened peghead face with Gibson logo at top, crown inlay in center and truss-rod cover near nut. Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays. Top edge of body and fingerboard are bound with cream binding. Adjustable bridge with Rosewood base and brass rod saddle.
Professionally refretted with stainless steel frets.

Sounds great when played thru an amp. 8-string electric mandolins always sound much better than a 4-string. Its easy to see why these instruments are selling for ~4500 in the UK.
The case is an excellent newer “Gator” shaped case with white cloth and brown leather trim on the lid edge.
