Here's an old twelve string mandolin. I'm not sure of the maker, but this old bowl-back is probably around thecentennialmark. It will need tuners, a bridge, and strings (of course) but appears to be in pretty good shape considering its age. The pieces of wood that make up the back are notseparating, as I've seen in most other mandolins of this style and age. There is some dipping in the face, but fitting the bridge should be able to correct this, as could somehumidifying. Really, with its inlays, you could even just use itasa decorative wall-hanger. I've had this for about a year now, and I've just never got around to doing one-thing-or-another about it, so I think it's time to let it go. It will be packed very carefully.
