This is a nice vintage Flatiron, made in Bozeman, Montana - probably in the early to mid 80s. It is a "player." The neck was cracked in a fall and it has been professionally re-glued. It is strong and the string tension keeps it very tight. When I first got it the tuner holes were not properly aligned and in correcting this a small part of the veneer was damaged - it has been re-glued. I replaced the tuners with Rubner tuners - which is one of my favorite brands. They are excellent. I will include the original Schaller tuning machines (my second favorite.) The mandolin comes with a hard case.

I had what looked like a crack on the center line re-glued just to be sure it was sound, otherwise there is some surface paint cracking. IMHO this is a nice old instrument that has still a great deal of life left in her. I have attended to everything that I could to make it a great "player."

I will be glad to entertain offers.
