Kentucky KM-900

kr. 10,250

In the classic era of American mandolins there was a single example of a Lloyd Loar Master Model mandolin produced in the A-style. It had a symmetrical pear-shaped body without points or scroll and a perfectly shaped snake-head peghead. Because only one mandolin of this type was ever produced, that original instument has risen to mythical status.

Every discriminating player and collector dreams of owning that original instrument, and now it is possible in the new KM-900, with its hand-carved and graduated solid spruce top and hand-carved and graduated solid figured maple back, sides and neck assuring superb craftsmanship in every feature.
