Kentucky KM-156 Standard

Brand: Kentucky | Stock Id: KENTUCKY-KM-156

Kentucky’s KM-150 series combines great tone and playability with period-correct vintage styling and specifications in an affordable A-style mandolin. The KM-156 is notable for its rich, transparent brown high-gloss finish, which recalls famous mandolins of the prewar era. This carefully applied, ultra thin finish promotes optimum sound as well as looking beautiful and vintage correct. The neck and body are joined by a modified dovetail joint in the traditional style, which guarantees the greatest strength as well as optimum sound transmission. Genuine solid German spruce is used for the top while the back, sides, and neck are of select solid Alpine maple. This is why Kentucky 150 series mandolins outperform everything in their price range and some costlier makes as well! Perfectly shaped arching, the finest woods, and the skills of our luthiers make the KM-156 a world-beater in every respect!
