Enjoy! Even if you eventually wind up with some higher end instruments down the road, your good 'ol Kentucky will always be handy for traveling, camping, whatever. Worth re-setting up every few years, smoothing sharp fret ends, etc. Love my early 80's 180-B.

Totally. Thats what I use it for. I have an old gibson, and an old martin I am going to have worked on while I have this one for my everyday "working" mandolin. It sounds great, looks great, and Im pretty blown away by it.

That's a beaut!

After slowly making my way up the ladder of higher an higher end mandolins, I recently got a used KM-150 and am loving it to bits. Not to say that it is replacing my Ellis, but I did sell my previous backup mando (a Gibson A9) after buying the Kentucky. Great instruments!

Happy picking,
Baron

Yup these "entry level" Kentuckys are just stupid good for those kinds of dollars , IMHO . Enjoy your new 250 .

A real beauty - Kentucky mandolins keep coming up trumps.
