Description

Here we have a very clean 1959 Gibson A-50 Mandolin. It's all original with little wear. The voice is all vintage Gibson Mandolin, strong chop and clear and articulate single note lines. It's in perfect playing condition as well. Here's your chance at an extraordinarily clean 50's Gibson A-50 Mandolin.

This is one clean A-50 Mando. These Gibsons from the 1950 are a great value for the player seeking superb tone. This one is clear and strong.
 
This is a very articulate mandolin and should cut through any mix.
