Why not spread the cost?

This sensational Gibson mandolin is over a hundred years old and still singing with all the charm and zeal that accompanied it on its first outing to the world at large. 
The red-stained carved Birch back and sides pair delightfully with the Spruce top, which has been finished in a very handsome, well played in black finish, a combination which lends itself perfectly to the now iconic, versatile and woody tone of this magnificent instrument.
This Mandolin is in great shape and comes in its original Hardshell Case.
