Lyon & Healy, Style A Mandola, Mandola, c.1925, Chicago
This Style A Mandola is a rare and visually stunning instrument in a very pure state of preservation, and with an incredible sound. It has a carved two-piece back of American slab-cut maple of irregular medium curl, a carved spruce top with an oval soundhole, two symmetrical body points, and a two-piece mahogany neck with a carved violin-style scroll. It also has an ebony fingerboard with 11 frets to the body and 24 total frets. The scale length is 15-3/4″, nut width 1-1/4″, the width of the body is 11-3/8″, and the length of the back is 14-7/8″. It is completely original. There are several hairline crack repairs in the top, but it is otherwise in excellent condition and comes in the original hard case (case in fair condition). The large oval label reads: MADE AND GUARANTEED BY/ LYON & HEALY/ WORLD’S LARGEST MUSIC HOUSE/ CHICAGO, U.S.A./ No. 693 Style A
