Overview

Here is a professional quality F-Style mandolin, offered by Kentucky at a surprisingly affordable price relative to the materials used, the design excellence and the attention to detail in the construction and finish. Only the finest American spruce and maple is hand-carved and graduated for the tops and backs. Deluxe 14:1 reverse tuners, pre-war style ebony bridge and side-striped w/b/w ivoroid body binding all reek vintage. Take a trip back to the early 20s on the Kentucky time machine...it is surprisingly affordable.
