How cute is this little puppy...? Just in time for Xmas, if you have a large enough stocking you should be able to just squeeze this awesome electric mandolin right in there.

Sorry, this item was sold out.

Probably the finest and cleanest, all original and comparatively rare 1962 Gibson EM-200 Electric Mandolin out there right now and one with no breaks or repairs or finish issues whatsoever. It also includes its original, specially made hard case to complete a rather nice package.

These are relatively rare Gibson electric mandolins, you do not see many of these in comparison to the more common EM-150. They are solid body and loosely designed like the F5 with deluxe appointments and gold plated parts.

There is hardly a mark anywhere on this beauty and the only things that prevent us from describing it as mint are just a few tiny dings here and there plus a fair bit of gold plating worn off the tailpiece (see pictures).

It is impeccably set up with a blindingly fast and low action. Our in house mandolin aficionado says it is one of the easiest mandolins to play he has ever encountered and to mandolin lay people like us, it certainly seems that way.

Finish is superb and so clean. Electrics work brilliantly and pickup is a cut down P-90 especially made for these mandolins. Maybe its a P-45..? (you would probably only get that gaff if you lived in the UK btw)

Not much more to say about this beauty really except if you are looking for an electric mandolin then this is probably the finest one you could ever hope and wish for. Merry Xmas…
