      1953 Martin A Style Mandolin with Geib Case

      Martin introduced their mandolins in 1895 because they noticed the popularity of the instruments throughout America & they were doing a ton of repairs on mandolins made by other companies. At a time in the late 1890’s Martin mandolin production was actually out-numbering the guitar production! This little dreamy Martin is from 1953 and it features a solid spruce top with mahogany back & sides
