Coombe A Standard - Tasmanian Blackwood (USED, 1997)
I bought this lovely Coombe A earlier this year from The Music Emporium. It's a fab mando, beautiful and is a really solid build (no surprise there!). Would be a great mando for playing out. Not only is the build solid, but it comes with a bright yellow Pegasus case with TARTAN lining!
Selling for two reasons: we just didn't bond (sad face!), and I need to make room for an OM that's on order.
If you've thought about a Gibson A but didn't want to deal with an antique, this is a great opportunity.
Has been stored properly humidified in its case (I don't leave instruments out -- they get played, then put right back in). Non-smoking household, no funky smells. I do have a dog, but she wants nothing to do with mandolins.
Here is the LINK to my photos, taken outside with an overcast sky. It's a lovely warm blond.
Link to the original Music Emporium page, which has all the specs:
So here's the deal: I took a ton of photos, but if there is a view you need a shot of, please ask. I tried to note issues on the actual photos -- please check those out. Btw, the tuners on this are amazing, smooth as butter!
The case is an older Peg in good used condition -- I've given it a good wipe-down. It has little dings and scrapes, the cushioning inside has formed to the instrument. There are two places where the lining is pulling away from the edge, I will glue those down before shipping. Hardware is all solid, seal is solid. Overall it doesn't look like it was hauled around much.
Before shipping, I will change out the strings & I have a few choices. I will let you know the options (if I don't have what you want, we can work something out although it will mean a delay in shipping as I will have to order). When I change strings, I'll also give the frets & fretboard a little refresh.
Regarding shipping & insurance, that is at cost -- what you pay is what I pay. I can ship USPS, UPS, FedEx. Sorry, U.S. only. I am an excellent packer, from a long line of excellent packers (my grandparents moved from NY to NM shortly after WWII, on a lot on non-paved roads and not a single piece of china was broken!).
Payment is via PayPal, will pay the fees. That way shipping is easy, you automatically get the tracking number, etc.
Any questions? Please ask. Would love to see this mandolin get the playing time it deserves. :-)
