Gibson EM-200 Florentine Solid Body Electric Mandolin , c. 1954

Gibson  EM-200 Florentine Solid Body Electric Mandolin ,  c. 1954

Gibson EM-200 Florentine Model Solid Body Electric Mandolin, c. 1954, made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, sunburst top, dark stained back and sides finish, mahogany body and neck, rosewood fingerboard, original brown hard shell case.

An extremely fine "Florentine", Gibson's most radical electric mandolin. Looking like an A-5 crossed with a Les Paul, the EM-200 was the only solid body electric mandolin of Gibson's classic era and one of the best -- and flashiest -- electric mandos ever designed.
Overall length is 27 7/8 in. (70.8 cm.), 10 in. (25.4 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 1 5/8 in. (4.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 14 in. (356 mm.).

Completely original and in extremely fine condition, with just a few small finish dings.
