Vintage ORPHEUM #1 Archtop Banjo Mandolin

Very Nice Original Hardshell Case Included

**************************************************************

circa 1915*

*Retteburg & Lange did not keep records on the dates for their Orpheums. That is why most vintage instrument catalogues list R & L Orpheums as ''c. 1915''.

UNRESTORED - NORMAL CLEANUP ONLY

Maple rim (9-3/4'' OD x 2-1/4'' Deep x 5/8'' Thick)

8-3/4'' archtop tone ring and 10-1/4'' nickel plated rim skirt

All original hardware

New GHS mandolin 'light' strings

New 7-1/4'' rosewood fingerboard with MOP dot inlays/Nice and flat

Abalone inlaid peghead

10-1/4'' skin head looks original and is in very good condition

Action is 1/8'' above the 12th fret wire

Nut width 1-1/8''

Bridge does not appear to be original/Looks like ebony with bone insert

Dowelstick appears to have been replaced sometime in the past/Has a spacer washer between stick and rim

Cracked heel cap has had a rudimentary repair, also in the past, but seems to be stable

Trim molding on bottom of rim is missing but rim looks good without it
