OVERVIEW

A professional instrument in tone and playability.

For the working musician there is nothing more important than having a great-sounding and reliable instrument. Kentucky now offers the redesigned KM-850 to satisfy that demand. Their luthiers’ hand-select the best close-grained German spruce and figured Alpine maple to use in the construction of each instrument. The result is a thoroughly professional instrument with a tone and playability that are among the best of any other mandolin in this price range and a true work of art to behold.

FEATURES
  • Solid German spruce carved top gives you clean articulation and a crisp, bright tone
  • Select solid flamed Alpine maple back and sides provide extra punch
  • Slim select Alpine one-piece maple neck for comfortable, easy action
  • Premium radiused ebony fingerboard gives extra durability and striking good looks
  • High-gloss sunburst finish for traditional beauty and luster

Great tone and Kentucky mandolins go hand in hand. Order today.
