Kentucky KM-950

kr. 14,295 (DKK)

In response to the demands of many contemporary-style mandolin players, the new KM-950 features a compound radius fingerboard with medium-sized frets for extremely comfortable, fast, and accurate playability for the fretting hand, and a scooped extension over the body making room for a more aggressive rhythm chop of the right hand, common to many pro-level players.

Combined, the wider nut and overall fingerboard width, and bridge saddle spacing than traditional vintage instruments, this new A-model is made to play! Most of these player-friendly features are not new and were first pioneered by Kentucky in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s on our legendary mandolins, produced in collaboration with the world-renowned New York luthier, John Monteleone.

In every other respect, the new KM-950 conforms to our ever-popular KM-900 with its hand-carved and graduated solid spruce top and hand-carved and graduated solid figured maple back, sides and neck assuring superb craftsmanship in every feature.

Features

  • Solid carved Adirondack spruce top provides you with superior note clarity and volume to spare
  • Solid flamed Michigan maple back and sides ensure extra punch
  • Slim maple neck for comfortable, easy action
  • Radiused premium ebony fingerboard gives extra durability and striking good looks
