In response to the demands of many contemporary style mandolin players, the new KM-950 features a compound radius fingerboard with medium-sized frets for extremely comfortable, fast, and accurate playability for the fretting hand, and a scooped extension over the body making room for a more aggressive rhythm chop of the right hand, common to many pro-level players.
Combined, the wider nut and overall fingerboard width, and bridge saddle spacing than traditional vintage instruments, this new A-model is made to play! Most of these player-friendly features are not new and were first pioneered by Kentucky in the late 1970s and early 1980s on their legendary mandolins, produced in collaboration with the world-renowned New York luthier, John Monteleone. The KM-950 is just another reason why Kentucky mandolins are still America’s Favorite!
