Breedlove American KO Mandolin



The K series of Breedlove mandolins became an instant classic. Through the mind and hands of Kim Breedlove, the traditional Florentine shape has been transformed into a more modern, less frilly version of itself. The American KO has an oval sound hole which provides nice resonance and an open tone. This innovative design combines the traditional woods of Sitka Spruce for the top and Flamed Big Leaf Maple for the back and sides creating lots of sustain and volume. With a radiused fingerboard and oversize frets, Breedlove mandolins are extremely comfortable to play. The clear satin finish allows you to see all of the natural beauty that these lovely woods have to offer.
