Kentucky carved tops deliver the knockout punch.
The KM-160 Kentucky Mandolin has the cutting power required for solo and ensemble work. The basis design elements of this series have continuously evolved and improved over Kentucky's 30-year history. The body shape has been refined for maximum percussive effect. Your chop might just shatter not only your own windows but possibly your neighbors as well!
The slim, fast neck is constructed of a single piece of maple and is reinforced with an adjustable truss rod. The neck is attached to the body with a complex dovetail joint for maximum security and sound transmission. The bridge is adjustable for easy adjustment of string action. Tuning is quick and precise with the M120, 14:1 ratio Gotoh tuners. The snakehead peghead shape is overlaid with Indian rosewood and inlaid with pearl and abalone in the unique Arrowhead design.
