Stradolin ("Strad-O-Lin") Mandolin c. 1950s
This vintage Stradolin mandolin, likely built in the 1950s, has a lovely vintage tone and very low comfortable action without buzz. It certainly has its share of marks and dings, but there are no cracks or separations. The tuners may have been replaced at some point and have some play but all function. It remains a mystery amongst mandolin enthusiasts as to who actually build the Stradolins that were marketed from the 30s to the 50s but it is universally agreed that their tone far exceeds their price range. This instrument is no exception.
Comes with an older, grey (possibly original) chipboard case in average but serviceable condition.
