OVERVIEW

Traditional design with a '50s look.

The new Kentucky KM-508 Gold Top Artist A-model Mandolin combines traditional design with a classy 1950’s look; creating one exceptional instrument that sparkles and shines in the hands of any player.

Only the highest quality hand-selected, and naturally dry-aged European spruce and maple are used to construct each instrument to provide plenty of power, volume and playability to assure that the KM-508 not only has the right look, but also a sound that’s worth its weight in gold.

  • Solid carved flamed maple back and sides for extra punch
  • Slim maple neck for comfortable, easy action
  • Radiused premium ebony fingerboard gives extra durability and striking good looks
