This is an older model Kentucky KM-350s mandolin. It has a hand carved solid spruce top, and solid curly maple back and sides. It had a center seam separation on the top, between the tailpiece and the bridge, which has been professionally repaired. You can see a tiny chip in the finish, but since it's under the strings, it's not very noticeable. It also has replacement gold Schaller tuners, and is missing the tailpiece cover. I have a generic TP cover that I'll include.
The mandolin plays very nicely, with low action and no buzzes. It sound really good for a Chinese instrument, and is loud. I'm asking $250 with a TKL arched lid case, or $225 in a nice Tour Grade brand gig bag, plus shipping. I might be interested in trading for a 7 string lap steel, or a telecaster style guitar. Thanks!
