Kentucky KM276 Mandolin w/Gig Bag & Pro-Setup

$499.00

Before 1922, most popular mandolins had Oval-shaped sound holes, which created a distinctive sound that played a significant role in shaping the sound of popular music of the day. The diminutive size, unique voice and relative affordability (compared to F-dstyle mandolins) made it perfect for a wide range of musical styles. Vintage examples of these popular A-style instruments are still played by discerning musicians and coveted by collectors around the world. This legendary mandolin design is affordably manifest in the Kentucky KM-276 A-style mandolin with the oval sound hole.

At Sun Valley Guitars, our setups are legendary. With 15+ years of perfecting our setup, and thousands of Mandolins set up meticulously by Sun Valley Guitars Owner, Brian Farmer, you know when your Mandolin arrives, it’s going to play and sound great!
