Columbia Mandolins

Named for the largest river in the Pacific Northwest with a design aesthetic inspired by Kim Breedlove. The Columbia KO premier Mandolin offers an excellent appointment package for our devoted Mandolin players. This Premier series mandolin is composed of the highest grade Sitka Spruce for the top, and Western Big Leaf Maple for the back, side’s, and neck.  Black binding on the body top, back and neck accentuate the angles and contours of this KO style.  The design of the K-style features our original asymmetrical peg head as well as a Defined on the Bass upper bout. The Columbia is finished with a captivating Red toner full gloss finish. The radiused fingerboard (which offers great comfort) is adorned with a detailed Mosaic pin inlay and oversize frets. Gold hardware is standard on all of the models in the premier Mandolin line. For amplification the Columbia is equipped with the K&K Twin Internal electronics system.
