Description

We've got a live-wire of a mandolin from the folks at Breedlove Guitars in the story today! In addition to making distinctive and expressive guitars, Breedlove also makes fine mandolins, like this 2003 Breedlove Cascade. With Flamed Maple for the back, sides, and neck, and Sitka Spruce on top, this modified F-style (which Breedlove has coined the "K-style") has great drive and an energetic, punchy tone. The clarity and articulation of this mandolin set it apart from others in this price range (no damp, flubby notes here), making it an excellent buy for either the guitarist looking to expand his repertoire or the mandolinist looking for a great gigging mando. This one is set up great for Bluegrass, but it could be easily adapted for Blues or Traditional music. Lastly, this mandolin comes with the original briefcase-style Breedlove hardshell case.

Breedlove's built a fine mando here, with a surprising amount of projection and sustain.
 
The shape and tone are pure Breedlove.
