❌SOLD❌ Kentucky KM-1000 Master F-Style Mandolin, Vintage Sunburst


Instrument Categories: ,

Make no mistake about it, the Kentucky KM-1000 Master Model mandolin is a serious contender in the professional mandolin field, with all solid wood construction, true carved, graduated American Red (Adirondack)  spruce top with tone bars, true carved graduated Northern Michigan maple back and sides, Maple neck with Ebony fingerboard, Loar style bridge, engraved tailpiece, inlaid peghead, thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish and precision Gotoh 14:1 reverse tuners!

There seem to be plenty of manufacturers these days who are able to make mandolins that LOOK like an F-5, but they often fall quite short when is comes to SOUNDING like an F-5. The current version of the Kentucky KM-1000 Master Model actually delivers that throaty midrange and cutting high end that we all associate with a really quality mandolin!

The Kentucky KM-1000 Master Model mandolin is sold with its original ProTour BV-2012 Mandolin Gig Bag.
