Kentucky KM1050 Mandolin

$2,445.00

At first glance, this new master-level mandolin shares similar specifications to the popular KM-1000, but looking more closely you will discover a few more player-friendly features. These features include an ebony fingerboard with a compound radius, a wider nut and saddle for more comfortable string spacing, frets that are taller and wider than those found on vintage instruments, and a skillfully scooped fingerboard extension with inlaid nickel-silver fret markers to retain a traditional look. Like other Master Model Kentucky Mandolins, the body of the KM-1050 features a handcarved and graduated Adirondack spruce top, and a back, sides and slim comfortable neck made of select Northern maple to assure the best tone possible.This Kentucky F model featuring a 1 1/8″ nut, large frets and radius fingerboard
