    There are few mandolin family instruments as beautiful as the fanciful Gibson H-4mandola.  Based on the Gibson F-4 mandolin which was, in its early period, the top of the line Gibson mandolin (until 1922 when it was superseded by the F-5) it is a larger version of the F-4, having the large body scroll on the upper bass side and having the two large body points on the treble side.  The headstock is matching, except in reverse, having a small scroll on the bass side and a large scroll on the treble side of the headstock, and an even larger point at the top center of the headstock.

    Tag No 32-3833 Used
    #53662, in very good plus condition with a new Guardian black exterior, hard shell plush lined case.

    Every now and then a prewar Gibson A-style mandolin comes in that’s a great player and a truly outstanding sounding mandolin, but which, in other ways, is not one that you would call “pristine” or even “excellent.”  This is one of those.   It is a bona fide Style A-2, meaning that it has ivoroid top binding as well as back binding, plus an ivoroid bound black ebony fingerboard.   we would very much like to recommend it to you as being a fine looking Style A-2 mandolin, a good player, and a great sounding musical instrument that has already experienced 95 years of American history and which is undoubtedly ready, able and willing to be used for another 95 years of making music.

    Our Discount Price is $1,954.00 and Our Cash Discount Price is $1,895.00.

    #23245, with a long, elephant-like snout as its headstock, having the number 23245 etched by a prior owner on the heel cap, with original hard shell case.

    Mr. A. Stathopoulo of New York built this banjo-mandolin with a European style headstock – with open architecture – one long slot across which 8 side mounted tuners cross a gulf, four on each side, each with an ivoroid round button.   The very top of the headstock is bent forward at the top, perhaps this was an architectural element in Greece, from whence Mr. Stathopoulo emigrated.  Getting back to our story, Anastasios Stathopoulo’s son later renamed the company “Epiphone.”

    We are pleased to say that a posting on Mandolin Café back in January 2005 from “dunbarhamlin” provides greatly appreciated background on this style Vega mandolin.       He says:  “Ooh nice. Looks like a 201 (the cylinder backs being designated 202, 203, 205 and 207, according to furniture and ornamentation).  Whilst woods do change, the catalogue I have which features it offers the following specification:

    #82134, in excellent original condition with original black exterior semi-rectangular hard shell case.

    This is, by anybody’s standards, one of the finest Gibson mandolins produced in the post-Lloyd Loar era.  Even though its original owner possessed what is arguably the finest mandolin one could purchase in 1925, said individual never learned to play and so the instrument remains in solidly excellent condition. The mandolin has never been out of the care and protection of the family to which it has belonged, and, has, ever since the late 1920s, seldom been taken out of its original compartmentalized case – the semi-rectangular hard shell with the red velour  lining.   WAS $102,585 BUT NOW ON SALE FOR:

    The master model KM-1500 from Kentucky uses the finest, most highly figured Michigan Maple combined with the whitest, most fine-grained Adirondack Spruce.
