2015 Breedlove - American KO Mandolin - Vintage Burst
No. 5480. Includes original deluxe hardshell case with all original case goodies. From a smoke free, climate controlled home. Looks like new & plays a bit nicer, as the original owner had it professionally setup. He unfortunately never took to playing a Mandolin. His loos, your gain!
With killer bluegrass tone, incredible sustain and projection, and breathtaking Breedlove looks, the American KO Mandolin is a true pro level Mandolin at a budget price.
With a design that harkens back to the golden era of Mandolin building, Breedlove American Mandolins combine the best traditional construction elements with Breedlove's cutting-edge aesthetics and attention to detail. With a distinctive asymmetrical "K "shape body, this Breedlove Mandolin not only provides fantastic aesthetics, but it fulfills your most discerning tonal desires.
With an open, full sound, the Breedlove American KO Mandolin is perfect for styles ranging from Classical to Celtic Music. With fantastic sustain and unmatched projection, the American KO Mandolin will shine in a bluegrass setting and beyond. The Breedlove Mandolin features a single oval sound hole, producing sound that is loud, and punchy-ideal for rhythmic strumming or out-front lead solos. The solid Sitka Spruce top and Maple back and sides complement these features, and add robust projection, so this K-style Mandolin can be heard no matter what arrangement you find yourself in.
Whether practicing at home, jamming with your buddies, or blazing some Bill Monroe licks at center stage, this 8-string sounds killer. The 13.94 inch scale, 1-3/16 inch nut width, and 16 inch radius provides comfort and accessibility when running up and down the instrument's 23 frets. The bolt-on maple neck along with the ebony bridge and fretboard provide amazing clarity and sustain, while also making the Breedlove Mandolin incredibly sturdy.
