Comments Here’s a very nice 2011 Kentucky KM505 A-Style mandolin. The A-Style, along with the F-Style — both introduced by Orville Gibson in the early part of the 20th century — have become the most commonly used mandolin body designs, shifting the instrument almost completely away from the traditional European bowl-back concept.

Kentucky mandolins are made for Saga in China, and are an excellent value. They feature all solid wood construction, good wood selection, and high build standards.

This example is in great playing condition, it’s ready to gig with a Schatten M-05 Standard pickup installed on the saddle, and at this price it is an easy introduction into quality mandolins.

Serial Number 22033305, built during 2011.
Pricing $575 CAD with hardshell case.
Neck Maple neck with bound ebony fingerboard, mother of pearl dot position markers.
Frets Very minor wear in the low positions.
Body A-style body with spruce top and maple back and sides.
Finish Gloss, Antique dark sunburst finish in good condition.
Hardware/electronics Schatten M-05 STD pickup installed on the saddle with jack mounted next to the tailpiece. Gold toned Gotoh tuners with pearlescent buttons, bone nut, gold strap pin on heel.
Playability/Action Plays very well as is.
Case Hardshell case included.
