Stradolin Junior Model Arch Top Mandolin, c. 1950, made in New York, NY, sunburst lacquer with stenciling finish, laminated maple body, poplar neck with rosewood fingerboard, black gig bag case.
Overall length is 25 1/4 in. (64.1 cm.), 9 7/8 in. (25.1 cm.) wide, and 2 in. (5.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 13 3/4 in. (349 mm.). Width of nut is 1 1/4 in. (32 mm.).

This is a super clean and fine-playing Stradolin, renowned as the best low-priced mandolins of their era. This one is all original and complete with just a few finish dings and some plating wear to the tailpiece cover. The Jr. was the bottom of the Stradolin line but still a good-sounding instrument. This is a very nice example, far better preserved than many and still an excellent budget mandolin. An exceptional value in a good-playing vintage American-made 8-string. Excellent Condition.
