Vintage 1950 Gibson A-40 Natural Mandolin with non-original hard shell case. Great action, no cracks in top or back, neck joint secure, minimal fretwear, original Kluson Deluxe machines with replacement buttons, original pickguard deteriorating but intact (very cool worn look). It appears to be the original bridge, Gold Gibson logo on headstock, FON number stamped in lower F-hole 4531-9. Original scalloped "cloud" tailpiece, bound carved spruce top, mahogany back and sides. Some minor finish checking and scratches, nothing major, no cracks.
