Re: Morgan Monroe Bean Blossom BM4A Mandolin any good?
I believe the "S" suffix on Kentucky mandolins means they have a "solid" (made from a single piece of wood) top rather than a laminated-wood top. Generally, a solid top is considered better for sound. Some of the entry-level Kentucky models come with both options, and you pay a bit more for the solid top.
