Comments about Kentucky Master KM-505 A-Model Mandolin:

Packed well, shipped quickly, beautiful instrument in every way. I thought I would have to make a few set up adjustments when I got it, which I don't mind doing, but it came set up nearly perfectly. Totally amazing for the $$.. Thx GC

Cracked saddle

By Mark Trimpey

Comments about Kentucky Master KM-505 A-Model Mandolin:

Long time guitar player, wanting to learn mandolin for some timbral diversity on my next recordings. Unfortunately, the first time I tuned the instrument up to pitch the upper piece of the adjustable bridge cracked 3/4 of the way through and collapsed. I'm still waiting to see if and how M/F will resolve the problem (I've asked them to send me a replacement bridge). Otherwise, seems like a decent instrument.

Comments about Kentucky Master KM-505 A-Model Mandolin:

I have only had this for a couple of weeks, but Guitar Center asked me to review it.
Well packaged, with a bridge already mounted! I tuned it up and it was ready to go. Smooth action, nice and low. I am a beginner, but the instrument makes me sound better.

Comments about Kentucky Master KM-505 A-Model Mandolin:

As far as I can tell this instrument is perfect. It looks professional. The sound is inspiring - loud and clear. The accuracy and feel of the frets is truly impressive. I already owned the Kentucky electric mandolin. The quality of that instrument made me trust the company. I highly recommend this instrument.
