The bridge is original as are the machines / tightening hardware.... The key heads are fashioned from bone.The wood is stamped'0131' near the keys. This is a good looking Mandolin...... I have not seen many La Foley models for sale but this would make an excellent light restoration project.
I have a feeling it'll sound rather nice when done. 60 cms long x 20 cm (across the table at widest point). There is one split of around 9.5 cms to the upper spruce board (please see photos). A couple of the strings / wires have also broken. Apart from this the mandolin can be considered to be in fine condition, with all other panels (back, sides) in sound order and the neck and join to the bodey free from breaks, repairs or restoration.
All items are packed with care, to a high standard and sent via tracked and signed for courier. Rest of the world: Please ask for a quote. Arrived on time and as described. If I could leave a million stars, I would.
SUPERB: accurately described, well packed and sent quickly - highly recommended! IF THERE WAS A SCORE HIGHER THAN 5 STARS THIS EBAYER WOULD DESERVE IT A++++.
