OVERVIEW

Top quality A-style.

In the Classic Era of American Mandolins there was a single example of a Lloyd Loar Master Model mandolin produced in the A-style. It had a symmetrical pear-shaped body without points or scroll and a perfectly shaped snake-head peghead. Because only one mandolin of this type was ever produced, that original instrument has risen to mythical status. Every discriminating player and collector dreams of owning that original instrument, and with the new KM-900 it is possible to experience those same design concepts with quality wood selection and a voice that can drive a bluegrass band or complement folk and rock music.
