Woodstock Guitars

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 a vine inlay of abalone pearl, carefully inlaid in just below the white pearl Kentucky logo.
