Kentucky KM1500 Mandolin w/Hard Case & Pro-Setup #19030306

$3,695.00 $2,695.00

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.

At Sun Valley Guitars, our setups are legendary. With 15+ years of perfecting our setup, and thousands of Mandolins set up meticulously by Sun Valley Guitars Owner, Brian Farmer, you know when your Mandolin arrives, it’s going to play and sound great!
