Kentucky Master F-Model KM-1500 In Cremona Sunburst Finish

$2,995.00 $2,157.00

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 Ñ just as were the fabled originals of the early ’20s Ñ 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 the traditional Fern inlay of abalone pearl, carefully inlaid in just below the white pearl Kentucky logo .
