Carvin 1-MB, 1951. $1,500.
Vintage Carvin electric mandolin from 1950 or 1951. These weren't made in large numbers and have always been scarce. Unique appearance and terrific sound. Yes, it's strung with only 4 strings in the photos, but naturally we'll string it fully before shipping. Original Carvin label is missing, but there is a sticker from The Bandstand, Wabash, Indiana, on the back of the headstock.      See more photos, hear a sound clip, call 425/772-0231, or e-mail for more information. $1,500 plus shipping.
