Description: Mandolin - Flatiron A5 Artist, highly flamed, vg to ex condition
Flatiron A5 Artist mandolin, highly flamed maple back, flamed maple sides and neck (flame is exceptional for this model). Spruce top. A few finish dings, nothing serious. I've used this mandolin on stage with good result.
Note: the pickup in the photo is no longer included: it is on my new mandolin.
This mandolin has been played a lot; it's a good instrument. I am selling it because I got a hand-made custom job that would rival a 30's Gibson!
I have a solid maple bridge on the mandolin. Tuners are in great condition. Original tailpiece.
Nut slots might need some slight widening, but this is a minor issue (some pinging when tuning unwound strings). Anyone with a set of nut slot files can fix this in 1 or 2 minutes.
Asking price is 1350 + shipping, but this is negotiable. I may be willing to go a little lower ;-) .
