1930's Kay Kraft Mandola

No Serial Number. Built by Stromberg-Voisinet in the late 1930's, the Kay Kraft line included guitars, mandolins, and banjos. Over the years we've encountered many four and six string guitars, tenor and 5 string banjos, and a number of mandolins. However Mandolas and Mandocellos are quite rare, and this example is the only of its kind that we've as yet discovered. The instrument features a long 18.25" scale, arched spruce top and mahogany back. It's entirely original but for newer Schaller tuning machines and is well set-up. Neck and frets are in good shape, body is crack free and well arched. With a tone somewhere in between a carved and a flat-top instrument this Kay Kraft Mandola offers something pleasantly unique.
