This vintage mandolin has a unique construction with its lute-shaped back.  The rosewood and maple ribs are bent into a bowl shape that gives the instrument a Renaissance look.  It has a soid spruce top that is mostly flat with an angled cut in the lower section.  Although once popular, this style of mandolin is hard to come by now.

The mandolin comes with a specially fitted chipboard case.
