The mahogany neck is straight and still well set into the body. Ebony fretboard with maple veneer on the headstock. IT DOES HAVE THE STRING BASE MISSING OTHER THEN THAT.NO DAMAGE All -in -all, a decent working instrument. IT DOES COME WITH A ORIGINAL CASE THAT WAS MADE FOR THE INSTRUMENT IN EXCELLENT CONDITION .
BUT NOTE IT WILL NEED A METAL BASE FOR THE STRINGS AND NEW STRINGS IV SEEN ON EBAY THE BASE FOR A LOW COST.
$15.00 S&H insured to anyw in the continental USA.I DIDNT HAVE THE COUNT of frets inculded in the first listing ,the mandolin has 20 frets, this instrument doesnt have any damage and looks very very nice for its age.
