Description
G. Puglisi Reale & Figli mandoline (Catania) - 21 ribben - Mandolin - Italy - 1905
Good - Number of items: 2 - Including: Mandolin - Extra comb, No extra's

An early mandolin from Giuseppe Puglisi & Zonen.
The mandolins which have the word “Figli” on them
are in any case from after around 1905. I have had various instruments from this good manufacturer and there is always a year at the bottom of the label near the word “Catania”.


This has become a custom around 1908. This label is different, so is earlier than its later blue labels.

(Check the labels on various forums)

- 21 ribs/2 locking ribs. Everything is solidly attached.
- Straight neck. Fingerboard thickened. Can now withstand more tension.
- Frets have more than enough material.
- Without cracks in the top.
- No loose struts in the body.
- Nice sound what these mandolins are known for.
- Veneered neck and headstock.
- Minor wear of course.
- Nice inlays. Rusty screws were replaced.
- Ready to play. New strings.
