Traditional design with a '50s look.
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
