C. F. Martin Style A-K Model Flat Back, Bent Top Mandolin (1926), made in Nazareth, PA, serial # 13317, natural finish, koa back and sides, mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, original black chipboard case.
 
Overall length is 23 3/4 in. (60.3 cm.), 9 5/8 in. (24.4 cm.) width, and 2 3/4 in. (7 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. Scale length is 13 in. (330 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/16 in. (30 mm.). Very clean overall with just some light scratches, dings and chips and some evidence of the finish being exposed to moisture on the lower edge. All original and unaltered, this is a very good playing and sounding example of this rather underrated mandolin. Includes an original chip case that is pretty well shot, but still just about holds the instrument. Excellent Condition.
