I think it's hard to beat the classic styling of this fine mandolin. I think it embodies all the best of the early Gibson style. And, this particular one has the advantage of the adjustable truss rod, narrower neck, and the careful attention to top and back thickness that characterizes the instruments made during Lloyd Loar's reign as "acoustic engineer" at Gibson.
