Traditional Look
Distinctive Design
Wood Selection

Hand-selected and figured maple is used for the backs, sides and necks of all Standard Model Instruments. Choice, narrow-grained solid spruce is used for the tops really brings out the woody articulate tone you’d expect from a quality mandolin. The woods are chosen for their inherent tonal properties and visual appeal, but they are also chosen to help keep the price low without sacrificing quality or tone.

Construction

All instruments exhibit refined and artistic workmanship in every detail of construction; following traditional construction methods and techniques handed down to achieve a level of quality that cannot be found in other instrument in this price range. From the dovetail neck body joint, to the delicate lines of the body shape, perfectly applied binding and a top hand-carved and graduated to perfection—the fit and finish is exceptional and the tone cannot be beat.

Fingerboard and Fittings

The fingerboards of all Standard Model instruments are beautifully shaped from top quality ebony for easy playability, durability and beauty. The frets are accurately positioned and polished to perfection, further enhancing playability. The compensated and adjustable bridge is perfectly shaped and allows for minute action adjustments, while the high-quality Gotoh tuners will provide smooth action and tuning accuracy for years to come. String changes are made easy by simply removing the engraved tailpiece to reveal the base; which is made of steel for added durability.

Finish

Even our most affordable Kentucky Standard Model mandolins are skillfully finished with a beautiful vintage sunburst made from nitrocellulose lacquer. This type of finish not only looks great and brings out the figure of the woods used during construction, but also provides a durable layer of protection that allows the wood to breath as it ages.

The mandolin is a wonderful model with a great sound. However, with the price listed, keep in mind that - unlike a number of the other products for sale here - this one doesn't come with a case. Additionally, this one is not fully set up - the bridge comes unattached. I understand the reasoning for doing so in shipping, but it's best you keep this in mind.

If you're like me and don't feel comfortable setting it up on your own, you will need to lay out extra money for final set up.

I have had this model Mandolin a little over a year now. For the price point it would be hard to beat. Set-up is the key to making this mando go from good to great.

The only drawback is that it arrived with the bridge off. They do this for shipping. Not a big deal as I would set up any mandolin I bought anyways. The sound is perfect. Best value.
