Mandolin #417

Genuine vintage character that would compliment any of the older A or F style mandolins and simply melt into the personality of a visually distressed instrument. This one has my “Diamond in the Rough” leather insignia above the headstock/scroll loop, which signifies absolutely nothing.

Shoulder Piece Size No shoulder piece.
Strap Style Western Rein
Strap Width 1"
Strap Leather Floppy soft, well used harness leather. I’m not certain if this one is dark oil or dyed black. Skived to 1/8” in thickness with dressed and burnished edges and slicked smooth on the backside. The strap can be rolled into a 3.5” diameter coil and easily stashed in the case compartment.
Strap Distressed Level Medium. The leather is quite old but in great shape with no issues at all.
Strap Notables One end is already set up for a headstock or scroll loop attachment made from a soft piece of 1/2” wide vintage leather skived thin enough to fit around a tight scroll if necessary. The other end will get the end buttonhole or multiple buttonholes punched in at the buyer’s specified length.
