Vintage Guitar - July 2016 - Open - 137
Take a Trip Back to 1923...
with a Kentucky Master
he KM-1000 Kentucky Master Model Mandolin
was introduced in the late 1970s in response to
players' and collectors' requests for a mandolin that
duplicated the best vintage instruments in every
point of tone, appearance and finish.
Kentucky Master Models are still constructed to
that same standard of excellence today.
Only the finest American spruce and maple are
hand-carved and graduated for the tops
and backs. Quality features like Deluxe
14:1 reverse gear tuners, a pre-war style
ebony bridge and ivoroid binding
all reek vintage.
Take a trip back to the early '20s
on a Kentucky time machine...
it is surprisingly affordable!
