Kentucky KM-1000B Mandolin
The ‘B’ in the Kentucky KM-1000B stands for black top. This mandolin is an impressive one. An Adirondack top needs to be played-in more than a Sitka top mandolin, but it pays dividends when you do.
The KM-1000B was introduced to the mandolin world during the 1970s. This was in response to requests for an instrument of the same standards of quality found in vintage mandolins, that is, tone, style and finish.
