Kimble O-Octave Mandolin, Flamed Maple & Red Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


Built by Will Kimble, Cincinnati, OH. Will has been working with us in Nashville for many years, and he is one of our favorite luthiers.
This very rare Octave Mandolin being offered by Will has an incredible sonorous tone. Will used banjo fret wire and the fretboard has a 16" radius. The tailpiece is Will's customary nickel-plated James tailpiece with the Kimble engraving.
We are selling this Octave as USED (due to fingernail marks), but Will will honor the warranty as if it were new.
The price includes a deluxe orange Calton case.
