Comments about Kentucky KM-1000B Master F-Model Mandolin:

Doesn't come with a pick guard. DONT play without it. Played for several hours and then noticed I had scratched the finish down to the wood....ouch.
Have a pick guard now.
The sound from it is amazing. Loud, ringing tone that is easily heard with other instruments playing.
