OVERVIEW

The 150 series combines great tone and playability with period-correct styling and affordability.

A member of Kentucky's KM-150 series line, the KM-156 is notable for its rich, transparent brown high-gloss finish, which recalls famous mandolins of the prewar era. This carefully applied, ultrathin nitrocellulose lacquer is exactly the same finish that was used on most prewar originals–and it promotes optimum sound as well as looking beautiful and vintage correct.

The neck and body are joined by a modified dovetail joint in the traditional style, which guarantees the greatest strength as well as optimum sound transmission. Genuine solid alpine spruce–meticulously hand-carved and graduated–is used for the top while the back, sides and neck are of select solid maple. This is why Kentucky 150 series mandolins outperform everything in their price range and some costlier makes as well.

Perfectly shaped arching, the finest woods and the skill of luthiers make the KM-156 a world-beater in every respect!
