1961 FenderMandocaster – Sunburst

Here we have a 1961 Fender Mandocaster in Sunburst. This Electric Mandolin features some later appointments for the model, including this three-tone finish and a tortoise shell guard. These almost look like mini Stratocasters, hence the nickname! It is complete with four strings (different from the usual 8 strings on a mandolin) and a mini single coil pickup. This mandocaster features wear throughout to indicate its age, but still remains all original and in great shape!

Overall Condition:  10, as clean as these original examples come!
