Overview

An artisan-level instrument, the Kentucky KM-1500 possesses all of the attributes a committed mandolin player seeks in a fine instrument. The finest, most highly figured Michigan Maple combined with the whitest, most fine-grained Adirondack spruce comprise the back and sides. These solid woods are meticulously hand carved and graduated like the storied originals of the early '20s ” to achieve the finest tone quality and volume possible in a new instrument. The delicately shaded Cremona sunburst finish is as close to the originals as you will ever see. The elegantly gold-plated and engraved tuning machines and tailpiece are in perfect harmony with the understated elegance of the finish and workmanship. Perhaps the crowning touch of elegance on the new KM-1500 is the traditional Fern inlay of abalone pearl, carefully inlaid in just below the white pearl Kentucky logo. The single notes sing, the fretted chords ring and the muted chops sting.
