Kentucky KM-252 Artist F-model Mandolin - Transparent Amber

$ 369.00

In 1922, mandolin designs began to change, as did the musical tastes of the time. The greatest Acoustic Engineer of the day began to develop designs that incorporated F-shaped sound holes instead of the Oval-hole designs that ultimately tightened-up the airy, woody nature of the traditional A-shape, and accentuated the treble frequencies often lacking in previous designs. All combined, these instruments offered the musician better balance and greater volume to meet the ever-changing musical styles to come. The Kentucky KM-252 Artist A-model Mandolin offers a professional quality instrument that is still affordably priced. All materials are hand-carved, with the tops and backs meticulously arched and graduated to achieve the correct balance of strength and lightweight rigidity for optimal tone.
Features:
  • Solid carved Sitka spruce top gives you clean articulation and a crisp, bright tone
  • Solid carved maple back and sides for extra punch
  • Slim maple neck for comfortable, easy action
  • Choice East Indian rosewood fingerboard ensures silky smooth playability
  • Transparent amber lacquer finish imparts enhanced luster and beauty

 

We're not just retailers, we're musicians, and we know what musicians appreciate.  So unlike many other internet sellers who just forward a pre-boxed instrument from the factory, we personally inspect, and if needed set-up the instrument prior to shipping so it's ready to play from the moment you unpack it. If the instrument is not right for any reason, it goes back to the manufacturer and not to you; so when you purchase from Main Street Music, you know you are getting a great instrument every time. Together with our already low prices, this makes us the best value on the net.
