Overview

As with all MK mandolins, it features a solid hand carved spruce top. On the Elegante however, craftsman spend more time carefully carving and graduating the top for the best possible sound. The back and sides are all solid flame maple and the fingerboard is hand selected premium ebony. With this no-compromises instrument you will also get the upgraded solid tailpiece. It has more mass for increased tone and a design that eliminates rattles and makes string changes faster and easier than ever before. The Elegante mandolin is topped off perfectly with stunning flame maple binding. This exotic wood accent allows the Elegante to stand out from the crowd in looks as well as with its big booming tone.

Michael Kelly is proud to offer the widest variety of mandolins available. Since they own their own factory, every Michael Kelly mandolin is built with care to produce the best tone possible. All Michael Kelly mandolins, from the least expensive to the most, feature solid wood construction. With additional features like Grover tuners, radiused fretboards, scooped fretboard extensions and dovetail neck joints, Michael Kelly mandolins are truly "Built on Sound".

Comments about Michael Kelly Legacy Elegante F-Style Mandolin:

I own this mandolin. I couldn't ask for any better. It has a deep balance sound,and its does bark and crack. It's as good as any Gibson, Weber, Collins, and Eastman. It also is a beautiful Mandolin. Mk Mandolins are built very well. No corners are cut.

Comments about Legacy Elegante F-Style Mandolin:

Bottom line is it sounds great/ well made. Very pleased. Great price and excellent customer support. Actually got a response on another product on a Sunday. Would recommend to anyone. I'm an old guitar player. Haven't played a Mandolin in over 35 years. Just getting back into it because my Grand Daughter starting to play guitar and I thought it would be an instrument I could accompany her with. Well to say the least I forgot how hard it was to tune, but managed and got the nack of it in about 30 min. Seems to stay in tune pretty well.

Comments about Michael Kelly Legacy Elegante F-Style Mandolin:

I've had to fight with this one a little. Had some issues with the A string and some strange buzzing. After a few days all seems well or on the way to being well. Bought this on a whim to take to a cabin I have. I down really like taking my better instruments into the wood, but this will do fine. I'll continue to play around with this a bit and it will be fine. The neck is comfortable and the action is good. Wood working looks to be well done. I may throw a pick up on it at some point

      Comments about Michael Kelly Legacy Elegante F-Style Mandolin:

      The mandolin was nothing more than a showpiece. It had no practical application because the tone quality was so poor. The nut was cut too high, the frets were sharp, and a high quality pickup could not compensate for all of the tonal deficiencies. I had a Guitar Center luthier work the instrument - to no avail.

      I like the mandolin, it plays well and has a good sound. Although it seems like it should be a little louder.
