For over 40 years, Kentucky Mandolins have been the choice of many musicians seeking the fine mandolins at an affordable price. The current product design team at Kentucky has over 150 years combined experience in developing and refining Kentucky Mandolins. With a fully carved spruce top, maple back and sides and a rich nitrocellulose lacquer finish, these instruments produce the rich woody tone that is sure to please the most discerning eyes and ears. It's for these reasons that the new Kentucky KM-500 compares in terms of tone and playability to any A-model mandolin available today!
- 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 smooth and easy action
- Radiused premium ebony fingerboard gives extra durability and striking good looks
- High-gloss lacquer sunburst finish for vintage beauty and appeal
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.
