2013 Kentucky KM-950

It just doesn't get any better than this in the under $1K club. In fact, it rarely gets better in the under $4K club either! Sensational sounding mandolin with a radius fretboard and a lovely burst.

Specs; select solid Spruce top, flamed Maple back/sides/neck in a cremona sunburst gloss lacquer finish, 3-ply (w/b/w) bindings throughout, radius Ebony fretboard, tone bar bracing, Fleur-de-Lis headstock inlay and nickel hardware including Gotoh tuning machines.

Very powerful bluegrass mandolin that features a dry, woody tone. Responsive and nicely balanced with exceptional sustain and a banjo bustin' chop. We've had a lot of mandolins priced at $5K plus that don't sound as strong as this little gem.

Excellent condition. Top has some play wear with some finger nail scratches in the "pinky plant" zone and some light markings on the bass side from a Tone Gard. Bridge has been moved at some point to correct intonation and finish shows a "shadow" of original location. Very light, but it is there. Minor fret wear.

Includes Golden Gate hard shell case.

Price: $899.95
