Kentucky mandolins continue to be today’s best value in hand-made professional quality instruments that can be afforded by all. The redesigned KM-855 is a particularly great example of just how the finest materials can be joined together by expert luthiers to create an instrument with a look that is second only to its tone! Each Artist series F-model mandolin is handcarved and graduated from the finest European tone woods to enhance their tonal characteristics. Other distinguishing features of this model is a beautifully radiused ebony fingerboard, high-quality gold-plated hardware and a period correct elevated pick guard. All just further reasons why Kentucky continues to be America’s Favorite Mandolin!
