My wife has come into possession of one of these in great shape. We hunted the internet and found info on A 100 and A 800 mandolins but not a word on the A 400. Does anyone know anything about it? When were they built, what value, quality, playability etc. Tish isn't a mandolin player but she and one daughter want to be.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Chip A.

Tish, I'm sorry, but on that specific model......no help. We can talk Alvarez stuff in general, but you probably already have plenty of info there. I'd suggest that you check-in over at The Mandolin Cafe, an excellent mando site which has a Message Board with a section devoted to specific models and such. Best thing I can think of right now.

Thanks Spaw for your help. Mandolin Cafe was new to us. Tish said she went there this morning for a sec, but didn't have time to look around much. I'm sure she'll dig deeper later.

This is a good sounding little mandolin. It has an arched, spruce top and is set up pretty well, although we did have to re-position the bridge to make it note true.

Again, thank you Spaw for responding. And by the way, we want you in bed and asleep tonight at 2:48 AM, NOT posting on the Mudcat.

Chip & Tish A.

Hey this may help, When I was about 12-13 years old I bought an A500 model it was cut away on both sides of body with an oval soundhole, this was in 1982/83/84 price then was $500.00 at a dealer new, headstock had pearl inlay up the scroll flower design but no double A's. Wish now I had of kept it, sold it to help pay for divorce in 1995.
