  3. Gibson (used, 1924) Style A Snakehead

    Gibson (used, 1924) Style A Snakehead

    Tag No 32-4263 Used
    #79070, in “excellent plus” condition, all original, with the original hard shell case.

    It is generally accepted that the finest sounding oval hole teardrop shaped mandolins were made during Lloyd Loar’s tenure as Gibson Chief Acoustic Engineer. Although this model was never signed by him, the Snakehead A reflects his creativity and passion for excellence. The term “Snakehead” refers to the inverted peghead shape – it gets skinnier as it goes upward – and said headplate on this example is silkscreened with a “The Gibson” logo at a steep angle and, below that logo, is the truss rod cover, symbolic of a slimmer, more accessible, though still V-shaped, neck shape.  *NOW ON HOLD*

    Tag No 32-4244 Used
    #9360402, in excellent condition, with the original form fitting Weber hard shell case.

    The condition of this Yellowstone is – well, the condition is supposed to show copious signs of normal use and wear, the fading color on the back of the neck, the extensive pickwear on the top, with fading on both sides of the scroll, light belt buckle on the back and showing very minor dings on the sides.  One presumes that most of these marks and signs of wear were put there by Weber.

  7. Gibson (used, 1909) A-4 Orville Gibson Label Mandolin

    Gibson (used, 1909) A-4 Orville Gibson Label Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4219 Used
    #9070, FON 911, including the original canvas bottom loading soft case and new hard shell case.

    This mandolin will be brought back to “very good” condition (or better, we’ll have to see!) after our repair shop has completed the restoration.  When it arrived, there was a split down the middle from the headstock that leads under the fingerboard.  This is common for this year A-4; we’ve seen other examples needing the same repair.  The split on the headstock has caused some of the inlay to fall off; including the “s” in Gibson and pot on the fleur de lis.  We happened to find some of the broken off inlay inside the original leather case, but unfortunately there will still be some areas missing after all is said and done.

    #71014, Cremona sunburst, in “near mint condition” with an off white exterior Calton hard shell case.

    The sound of this mandolin is ethereal, producing a sound that makes other mandolins blanch with emotional distress and slink out of the room. And speaking of Blanche, a customer who owned a Gilchrist Model 5 mandolin once told us that it’s okay to name your Gilchrist with a fancy lady’s name since “she can be subtle, gentle and sophisticated, yet able to devour a herringbone dreadnought and spit out the bones!”   REDUCED PRICE!  PRICE WAS $21,999 BUT NOW ON SALE FOR:

    Tag No 32-4216 Used Hear this instrument in our demonstration video!
    #7013098, in “very good plus” condition with the original rectangular hard shell case. The interior label is signed by Steve Carlson on September 8th, 1987.

    The Gibson F-5L is essentially the top of the standard (lacquer finish) line, not including their Artist models.  This is what Gibson itself has to say about it:   “The F-5L, introduced in 1978, marked the beginning of a return to the specifications of Lloyd Loar's original F-5 Master Model mandolins of 1922-24. Today's F-5 sets the standard by which all other mandolins are judged.” Not too modest or anything, and certainly not wordy.   It is most definitely beautiful and elegant.    OUR PRICE WAS S$5850 BUT NOW:

    Our SALE Price is $5,750.00.

    Breedlove (new) Premier OF Vintage Burst Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4204 New
    #17108, with hard shell case.

    The simple teardrop shape of the Premier OF Mandolin offers musicians much more than expected: substantial projection, and a boomy, deep range that speaks with clarity and authority. Composed of a Sitka spruce top and Western maple back and sides, the OF has tone bar bracing which further complements the bold projection. Breedlove mandolins are said to be easy to play with a radiused fingerboard and oversize frets that allow for extreme comfort. The finish on this OF is a sumptuous semi-gloss vintage sunburst, both beautiful to the eyes and pleasing to the hand.

    Our Price is $1,299.00.

    Phoenix (new) Neoclassical Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4199 New
    #621, Made primarily for classical playing with a sound as sweet as a varietal honey produced from the flowers of the tupelo tree found in the Southeastern United States & with hard shell case.

    Designed with the classical player in mind, this extremely high quality, superb sounding two-point model comes from the builder with Thomastic strings. Rolfe Gerhart, the builder, says: The Neoclassical is the only American mandolin specifically designed for full sound with extra-light strings (up to Dr. Thomastik mediums) for mandolin orchestras, and also for easy playing of folk, jazz, Celtic, and modern classical music. Professionals are startled by its loudness and light weight, saying, "I can’t believe the volume with extra-light strings!"

    Trinity College (new) TM-250 Mandolin

    Tag No 32-4188 New
    #1405080205, with hard shell case.

    This type of mandolin has traditionally been used for Celtic, Blues, Old-Timey, Brazilian music, and various other styles. The goal of the designers at Trinity College was to create the highest quality instrument of its type--an instrument suitable for any professional artist--but priced considerably lower than the prices that the current boutique makers ask for their instruments of similar quality. The finest solid tonewoods are selected for the TM-250. Choice spruce and select maple make up the body and the neck is solid mahogany--reinforced by an adjustable truss rod that keeps the neck in perfect alignment.

    Our Price is $715.00.

    #38426, sunburst top, mahogany back and sides, very good plus condition, ivoroid bound top, with a newer, somewhat oversized in interior length, hard shell case.

    We are pleased to say that a posting on Mandolin Café back in January 2005 from “dunbarhamlin” provides greatly appreciated background on this style Vega mandolin.       He says:  “Ooh nice. Looks like a 201 (the cylinder backs being designated 202, 203, 205 and 207, according to furniture and ornamentation).  Whilst woods do change, the catalogue I have which features it offers the following specification:

    #82134, in excellent original condition with original black exterior semi-rectangular hard shell case.

    This is, by anybody’s standards, one of the finest Gibson mandolins produced in the post-Lloyd Loar era.  Even though its original owner possessed what is arguably the finest mandolin one could purchase in 1925, said individual never learned to play and so the instrument remains in solidly excellent condition. The mandolin has never been out of the care and protection of the family to which it has belonged, and, has, ever since the late 1920s, seldom been taken out of its original compartmentalized case – the semi-rectangular hard shell with the red velour  lining.   WAS $102,585 BUT NOW ON SALE FOR:
