    Assume the relevant folk already know - up above $400, condition unknown, photos unrevealing. Betcha it goes right up to best retail.

    That is a snakehead A-2. Worn. Tailpiece, bridge, and tuners appear to be original. Might only need strings, or, might need a lot of work to get it playable.
    It appears to be an ok buy if it stays low. But potential buyers should heed these words in the description: " . . . probably in need of restoration."

    It hit $1900 ... I would say that is a little below market, so it could be a decent buy if there is nothing wrong with it. On the other hand, there's not a lot of room for error if there turns out to be a problem.

    The recent trend for Shopgoodwill Gibsons has been at or above market prices.

    worm-over tuners, maple back, unlikely to come with a case.

    I'd think it a nice mandolin; however.
