Here is a pair that was separated at birth. After 21+ years they are reunited and singing in harmony. From the same gene pool the resemblance is uncanny.

1984 Kentucky KM-1000 & KH-1300

Jim, what are those square-ish, solar panel-looking things on the tip of the peghead of the Pandinis? Is it part of the wood, therefore a stylish statement? It looks pretty nice, if so.

interesting, a black face A2. Does it have the white/black binding of the A2-Z?

It is a bit of MOP inlaid into what is called the finial. I always thought that it would be great to have an LCD TV on it.

Actually it is common on some of the higher end bowlbacks.

Yeah, tho it is hard to tell where the black part ends. I think this one is very similar to Statman's.

Of course there is a bunch of Whistles, Some more Flutes, a Guitar, a Tenor Banjo, and Highland Bagpipes with accesories left out soon there should be a Zouk too. The Flutes are what I play the most. I used to have a Kentucky KM-380 but traded it for my Tenor Banjo.

Arto:
They were very similar... the difference was minimal. I like mine better but it is mine. Either are nice instruments.

Umberto Ceccherini times two. I don't know if they were in the maestro's workshop in Naples at the same time (they're undated but I suspect there are a couple of years between them), but if they were, then they're reunited after well over a century apart.
