1930s Kay Strad-O-Lin Mandolin

Photo for Ad 118064

(No serial number) Good entry level vintage instrument. I think this is 1930s production based on the logo, the tuners and the plastic body binding. I also confirmed this with a known 1930s instrument, and the logos are identical. Structurally fine with a maple back and spruce top. Has the original see through pickguard. The reset of the hardware and finish also look original. Frets are good and the mandolin has just been set up so it plays nicely. Very good sound. Its not a Gibson F5 but its still a good sounding mandolin. Here is a link to a video of the mandolin as played by by Richie Dotson here in Richmond - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nP5EVJ4a_k. Has a more modern cardboard case. ....USD $600
