Vintage Flat Back Mandolin Neck Repair.

richie_mand_1
This is an old flat back style mandolin with a maple top. The tuners appear to be ivory. I do not know the makers name. This mandolin had a little accident breaking the neck into two pieces.

It appears to have been repaired once before using hide glue.
