Boutique Quality Appointments For A Fraction Of The Price
You'll certainly be getting your money's worth with this Legacy Dragonfly mandolin! Before you even play it, there's no argument that this mandolin is a work of art! The beautiful tobacco burst finish and the stunning dragonfly inlay make this instrument stand out in any setting, and will look great next to vintage mandolins of such detail. The gold hardware adorning the headstock and matching bridge help complete the overall aesthetic.

Incredible Construction And Materials Equals Incredible Sound
Between the solid spruce top and flame maple back and sides, you're guaranteed a loud, bold sound from such a small frame. Its dovetail neck joint and Graphtech Tusq nut help the tone resonate throughout the entire instrument, letting your notes sing and stand out in a bluegrass section.

Top-Of-The-Line Electronics To Get An Even Bigger Sound
Unlike many mandolins on the market, this Legacy Dragonfly comes equipped with a Fishman MK preamp, which is considered by many to be some of the best electronics available for the instrument. With these electronics, you're able to dial in the right amount of volume, bass, midrange, and treble so you can sound perfect in a live mix or when recording without a microphone. Also, there's no need for an external tuner since these electronics come complete with a built-in tuner!

Wonderful instrument, Great price!


I love this instrument! Easy to fret, sounds great! I am just picking up the mandolin. Coming in, I knew it would be somewhat different than an acoustic guitar but the ease of play and the great sound from this instrument eases the stress of learning to play bluegrass music from a different perspective.



Great mandolin for an affordable price.


Absolutely beautiful mandolin, great action, easy to play and stays in tune!



Very nice Mandolin


I do not know much about Mandolins as I am a Guitar player. However, I do love this instrument as it is really fun to play. It has a good tone and lots of projection without the need to amplify. Thanks to the built in tuner, it is a breeze to tune. This will take some time for me to get use to but, I think that the quality is very good and I am happy with it. Sam Ash was great to change the strings on it as it had not been used at all. No charge for that. Thank you, Sam Ash! Now it is time to learn how to play it!.........:)



At present I am very happy with the sound and action.


Play Bluegrass with other musicians. We are not playing out, but we do practice and may later.



Michael Kelly Mandolins has an excellent sound


Wow, I've been wanting one of these for a while. And it's worth the wait. The sound of a Michael Kelly mandolin is so nice. And the dragonfly neck, Wow, it has the looks to match the sound. Only if I could play it as good as it looks and sounds. And Sam Ash had it for a great price. What more could I ask for?



What a GREAT Mando!


I purchased my MK Dragonfly Legacy, from Sam Ash, a couple of weeks ago. I was Amazed at the craftsmanship, sound, and sustain this little mando has!

Great quality, superb art


A significant upgrade to my existing, more entry level mandolins. Solid craftsmanship and very good tone. After setup, intonation is very good and the sound projection is strong. Only one minor negative - the strings sit high on the nut: I am taking it to a luthier to get them lowered for better action.

Really solid pro grade Mando at affordable price!


As with everything in the Michael Kelly line, this is a pro grade mando at a decent price. It's got a sound comparable to some of the Flat Iron and Gibson's I've played. With a satin finish the solid top really projects. Just a great axe. - this is a staff review by skern at Sam Ash 57
