Here is a chance to get an incredible sounding F-2 mandolin at an affordable price. The top is spruce and the back and sides are maple. The instrument plays well up and down with no fret buzzing and a low action. Made in 1924, this mandolin features a truss rod and the "Virzi Tone Producer". At some point the mandolin was refinished. There have been a couple repaired holes (maybe from some sort of pickup?), as well as a repaired hairline crack or two. All things considered, this is an outstanding instrument that deserves a good home. The original F style case is included.
