The Strad-O-Lin is recognized far and wide as one of the greatest "budget" instruments of all time (legend has it that even Bill Monroe owned one), and this is a relatively clean and fine-sounding example. This particular instrument is likely from the late 40s or early 50s, as indicated by the absence of a date stamp. It features an elevated rosewood fingerboard, segmented F-holes, and a nice, woody tone. There is some very slight dipping on the top of this mandolin, but otherwise it is very playable with medium-low action.
