We present an original and rare 1957 Fender Electric Mandolin in its original Blond finish. Made in Fullerton, California.
This rare Mandocaster has a very nice straight neck with good frets. It’s all original and complete along with its original bridgecover, strap. Overall it’s in beautiful shape with very minor nicks and dings, finish checking, and other cosmetic wear. Sounds so good with no cracks/breaks or any repairs. As is common with these models, the plastic tuner tips are shrunken. We recommend in time to change them.
The pickup and the electronics/wiring remains untouched and intact, with no broken solder joints, no re-wound pickup. All original and correct.
Comes complete with its original hardshell tweed case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
