    Just had Richard Barnes (who is truly an artist!) restore this 1920s Gibson Mandobass. It's super cool and the perfect bass for a mandolin orchestra. Richard made a new tailpiece and has provided two endpins (for sitting or standing, which screw into the bottom or side hole).

    I am willing to ship this INCLUDED IN THE PRICE with a 1/2 double bass cover (inexpensive, but effective).

    There have been cracks and repairs, but all have been checked over by Richard and the instrument is totally ready to use. Someday you might want to consider new frets on the lower 4-5 frets, but I didn't want to replace them (for any collectors out there).

    Feel free to message me with questions and I'll do my best to answer!
