About This Listing

Up for sale is the Breedlove American KF Quartz Natural mandolin w/hard shell case.  The mandolin is really in excellent shape, but I listed it as very good because of two things:   First, I had to replace the tailpiece as the original one inexplicably failed.  It must have had a slight defect in one of the slim "arms" and it buckled.  However, I purchased another one (for $40- not a cheapy) from Two Old Hippies Stringed Instruments who handles Breedlove's mandolin parts inquiries and it works perfectly and had it professionally installed and set up.  I did not re-install the end pin, but have included the original and a brand new one. Second, there is some fret wear, but there is still tons of play left on this instrument before any action would need to be taken.  I am over-explaining and stressing things because I want there to be no surprises.  This is a very high-end instrument that is loud and stays in tune very well-in mandolin terms.  This one was made in the USA, unlike the KF models later on.  It is cosmetically in excellent shape and has beautiful quilted back/sides.  

Also included is the L.R. Baggs Radius (Magnetically Damped Accelerometer) pick-up that makes the instrument sound great plugged in as well.  Lastly, I am throwing in the L.R. Baggs Para Acoustic D.I. (because I won't need it anymore!), but know that the output jack isn't working, but the device still works by using the XLR jack to a quarter inch.  I will include the XLR chord. 

But this listing is about the instrument.  I believe it is a 2010's- the serial number that I tried to capture in my horrible photos is 13242- maybe that means it's a 2013-I'm not sure.  Shipping will be $35 to the lower 48.  

*****I tried adding a video.  I hope it works.  If it does, excuse my playing , but I thought it might be helpful for everyone to hear how this mandolin projects and has zero playing issues.
