Japanese Mandolin A-2 oval hole pointers to the likely early 80s 70s finder, movable bridge type Gibson, head of Florence, 24 frets (via a small extension), all acoustic (no mic), truss rod, table softwood (spruce vraisembleblement), funds and maple sides. I do not think it is dug, but hurry - it is not a priori plywood.
Channel V nice, very light, well balanced, the sound is at once powerful and balanced with just the right amount of harmonics, the Accesa while the handle is easy (although on the highest notes given the size of the frets, it is of little fingers!)
The sound is clear and powerful in the treble, and warm and round without much sustain in the bass. Although rather typed bluegrass, this sounds perfectly mando for Irish and rock. For classical, it is perhaps a little too powerful.
I use it almost every day for three years, I have an esay aupravant Beuscher, a Martella, a Chevalier, and was far ahead of all those there in terms of versatility, sound and comfort.
The value is good, in my opinion. A mandolin that quality is not under € 600. I would definitely do it again this election ... The only criticism he can be is the lack of micro, but the great mandolin player do not play with an internal microphone, so while waiting to be a great mandolin player, I can always do the same ...
