    Breedlove

    An easy-to-play K-style mandolin, built with homegrown woods and Breedlove's incredible craftsmanship.

    With a design that harkens back to the golden era of mandolin building, the 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 flamed 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" scale, 1-3/16" nut width, and 16" 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.

    Dressed in a smooth satin finish, with Gotoh M120-N tuners, and chrome hardware, this Breedlove mandolin is truly a bluegrass looker, and will impress everybody within range of its killer tone and breathtaking looks. Includes Breedlove deluxe hardshell mandolin case.

    Breedlove mandolins not only sound great, but are also very easy to play. Details like a radiused fingerboard and generous string spacing make them very comfortable instruments. Design features such as low-profile neck and tail blocks and a floating bridge extension ensure maximum resonance and tonal response.

        Comments about Breedlove American Series KO Mandolin:

        I've been playing mandolin for over 30 years. This mandolin is two to three times louder than any I,ve ever played and has superb tone and sustain. I wouldn't trade it for any I've ever played.
