Kentucky KM-900 Flamed Maple Mandolin


SKU: 417 Category:


In the Classic Era of American Mandolins-the early 1920s-there was a single example of a Lloyd Loar Master Model in the A-style-a symmetrical pear-shaped body without points or scroll. This mandolin had the long neck that joined the body at the 15th fret and the symmetrical “snakehead” shaped peghead. As regards finish, choice of wood and fittings, it was identical to the standard Master Model F-5. The tone of this singular mandolin was equal to any F-5 and has charmed players and collectors to this day. The most discriminating players and collectors will want this superb mandolin, and every serious player at every level will be able to afford it. You try the KM-900 Master Model mandolin and compare it to any boutique mandolins costing four times , and You will be convinced of the superiority of the new Kentucky KM-900!
