Mandolin Family1950 Gibson EM-150

Sunburst, electric mandolin, Michigan Broadleaf Maple that shows considerable flame. These electric mandolins were fairly successful for Gibson with about 120 shipped per year, still quite rare by todays standards.

Opening our original pear shaped case with nickel latches is like opening a treasure chest. Inside the green felt lining lay an original instrument with all the tuners, pickguard, knobs intact. It’s a handmade Gibson made from old growth wood including Brazilian bits. Decked out with micro P-90 pickup and early 50’s tall knobs sexy? Yes.

Back seam had been repaired (then buffed as some do) otherwise no other issues. Low action for effortless playin, flame maple worthy of your long gaze. Not for under the oak tree but best served on stage or studio with volume 1/3 down (maybe some effects). Quite charming $2500
