2006() Flatiron/Gibson Oval Hole Prototype #1

Photo for Ad 191265

very nice oval hole with beautiful wood, light feel, flat fretboard, small frets,1 3/32" nut width, bone nut.
neck is set up almost flat, very little relief, low action. frets are spot on level, bridge is low. very easy player. high flame all over the back, neck, headstock, sides.

back story to this oval hole:
survived the nashville flood due to being high on a shelf-or upstairs. after the flood, mandolin was removed and kept at Gibson. at some point was possibly sold to an employee but not sure. i purchased from TMS and i think i have a soundclip Dennis did. he told me he asked Dave H to build a bunch of these as he knew he could sell every one of them.

rosewood fretboard, looks bound in ebony as does the soundhole. tuners work very nice/smooth. soft V neck profile. very comfortable mandolin in every way.

$2000 net to me. comes in new condition TKL hardcase, nonsmoking environment.

many recent pictures, email me for those.
