Kentucky Master A-Model Mandolin KM-900 In Traditional 1920’S Sunburst

$1,395.00 $1,005.00

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 instrument 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!
