Description Technical Specs
 
The new master model KM-1500 from Kentucky uses the finest, most highly figured Michigan Maple combined with the whitest, most fine-grained Adirondack spruce. These solid woods are meticulously hand carved and graduated — just as were the fabled 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.

Kentucky KM-1500 Mandolin Features:

  • Solid handcarved Adirondack spruce top provides you with superior note clarity and volume to spare
  • Solid carved flamed Michigan maple back and sides ensure extra punch
  • Slim flamed maple neck for comfortable, easy action
  • Premium ebony fingerboard gives extra durability and striking good looks. Features 9 1/2" radius
  • Vintage sunburst finish in lacquer showcases beauty and luster
  • Includes a Deluxe Superior CS-1520 case

3 of 5 KM1500 April 5, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ramona, CA United States  
Great Mandolin, Best price. The set up, however, was not satisfactory. It was delivered with the bridge  laying loose, and after I set the bridge, and put it in the proper place on the top, It still had a 1st string buzz.

5 of 5 Best Mandolin for the Price September 23, 2013
Reviewer: Brandon Ladd from Johnson City, TN United States  
This is a stellar instrument! The craftsmanship is impeccable, and the tone is excellent - the Gibson tone for less than half the price. There's great choppy, woody tone coming from this instrument, and so it is perfect for bluegrass and other similar styles. I would highly recommend this mandolin to anyone looking for a professional instrument on a budget.
